The Health Benefits of Tuna
Seafood is widely regarded by medical experts and dieticians to be healthy and provide nutritional benefits not found in other meat sources. While salmon is often widely publicized for its health benefits, in general, most fish species are also low in calories and fat, but high in protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Yellowfin tuna provides 25 grams of protein per every 3 oz. with just 118 calories and 1 gram of fat. Yellowfin tuna is also a valuable source of B3 and B6 vitamins, and each serving provides a generous amount of potassium and the antioxidant selenium, which aids in preventing cellular damage.

You can also schedule your seafood delivery ahead of time. At checkout, choose the date you want your food delivered and we ship overnight all orders so your products are delivered on that day. This ensures we always deliver the freshest possible seafood at your door on the day you need it.
Simple Instructions for Storing Wild-Caught Yellowfin (Ahi) Tuna
Keep your wild-caught yellowfin tuna under refrigeration at ≤ 38℉ (3℃) at all times until ready for use.
Cooking Fresh Wild-Caught Yellowfin Ahi Tuna
Yellowfin tuna is the preferred choice many chefs use in sushi, such as in a maki roll or hand roll style. Serve with a soy-ginger dipping sauce and a dollop of wasabi. If semi-raw is preferred, sear fish about 1 minute per side.
Follow this simple recipe for seared yellowfin tuna steaks:
- Season tuna steaks with 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. of cayenne pepper.
- Melt 1/2 tsp. butter with 2 tsp. olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
- Cook 1 tsp. peppercorns into the mixture until they soften or pop (about 5 minutes).
- Place tuna steaks in skillet and cook until it reaches your desired level of doneness.
Tuna also works well on fish kebabs. Cut tuna into 1 ½ inch chunks, marinate in olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and pepper for 20 minutes. Thread onto kebabs with vegetables then grill.
Please be Aware: Consuming raw or undercooked fish may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have certain medical conditions.
