A perfectly seared tuna block provides endless options for appetizers and entrées. Thaw a Saku block on the counter for 2 hours, season (Montreal seasoning is spectacular!), and sear on high, for 2 minutes per side, in a hot cast iron skillet. Return the block to the walk-in to continue to thaw and that’s all there is to guaranteeing a rare center! Slice to garnish and serve with a scrumptious sauce for a gorgeous and tasty presentation.
A Swordfish Chop (there are only 2 per fish!), pan-seared then roasted, and basted with oil, butter, fresh herbs, and shallots will make a welcome addition to any menu. Served with any manner of sauces (perhaps a mustard béarnaise?) and paired with seasonal potatoes and vegetables, these Swordfish Chops are unique and delicious.
Chilled, sliced AAA Saku, served on a refreshing, spicy sauce of watermelon aguachile (chile water) with pickled kohlrabi (ancient vegetable cross between a cabbage and a turnip) and garnished with fresh cilantro.
By marinating our Island Brand Tuna Saku blocks, and then poaching them slowly in olive oil with fresh herbs, the resulting Tuna Confit makes an elegant and delicious addition to a beautiful Salade niçoise. Made from fresh green beans, baby potatoes, olives, ripe tomatoes, boiled eggs, and seasonal greens topped with a vinaigrette, this colorful salad also pairs well with a seared or grilled Island Brand Tuna Steak. Served as an appetizer or entrée, Island Brand Tuna and salad make a great summertime combo and a tasty addition to any menu.
