Default Lets Talk Eating Tuna

So, when I catch that Yellowfin of a lifetime or that mess of blackfin, how do I properly prep them for eating? I have heard a lot about bleeding them and icing them down immediately. What is the best way to bleed them?

Does the yellowfin hold o.k. frozen?

How about the blackfin? I hear a lot of people knock it. Its been a long time since I caught one, but my recollection was it tasted gteat grilled.

I just got done eatingsome nice grilled Blackfin from our trip earlier this week. We bleedem as soon as they hit the deck. we just cut behind the gill plate until they start bleeding good. Leave them on deck for a few minutes till they shake it all out. then to the ice box. Cut the remaining blood line out when cleaning.

I'm not sure if this is the "correct" way but its how we do it.

Tonights tuna was marinated over sliced onion and Italian dressing for about 20 minutes then grilled, YUM YUM!

Blackfin are all I've cleaned lately but the ones that were bled and gutted on the boat were far more tasty than those we didn't bleed and gut.



They were great on the grill and INCREDIBLE smoked.

They are super raw...matter of fact on the last 2 trips I have been on we slaughtered the blackfin...did not bleed them, chunked em on ice and in about an hour after catch, I marinated chunkcs of blackfin in srirachi hot sauce, sesame oil, mayo, green onions, sesame seeds a little soy and then made a cone out of nori (seaweed) put a little ricein the bottom and filled with the tuna...it is superb it is also good this way and paired with sliced cucumbers and use the cucumber as a "chip" here is a pic:

I have had both raw and liked both of them . I was picking on the guys on the boat about eating the yellowfin straight off the bone and we cleaned fish that afternoon they called my bluff. It was as good as it gets. I do like it seared on a cast iron griddle with butter and blackening seasoning. I made freash sushi roles with blackfin and like it just as much.

That stuff badazzchef made was legit. It lasted about 30 seconds on the boat. The "one bite" I was able to fight for was out of this world.
