    Did you know troll-caught or pole-caught pacific albacore tuna (びんちょうマグロ) is considered sustainable and environmentally friendly (read more)? There is a misconception about the quality of albacore tuna because it is used in canned tuna. However, albacore tuna is really delicious with a mild flavor and tender texture when served as sashimi or sushi. I also like that it is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids than other tuna species.

    Albacore Tuna Bowl (びんちょう鮪の漬け丼) is very easy to prepare. I use MSC Certified sashimi grade albacore tuna that’s vacuum sealed for this dish (available on my online sashimi store Fish for Sushi.com). Simply defrost in refrigerator for about 5-6 hours and it’s ready to enjoy.

    This rice bowl dish is flavored with with soy sauce, sake, mirin, and sesame oil – the usual condiments for most of Japanese meals. The meal is simple, yet make a quick special treat for the family at the end of a long day.
