    How to Make Garlic Soy Marinated Albacore Sashimi ニンニク醤油漬けビン長鮪の作り方

    Serve this easy Garlic Soy Marinated Albacore Tuna at your dinner party!

    Albacore Tuna (shiro maguro) is sashimi-grade fish commonly used in sushi. It is very popular in Japanese restaurants due to the soft, buttery texture and mild flavor. Albacore differs from yellowfin and other tuna species because its meat is more white.  In the U.S., it is the same tuna as the “white meat” canned tuna.  Since the albacore sashimi flavor is mild, it absorbs other flavors very well. If you enjoy sashimi, albacore tuna is a wonderful choice to prepare at home. There are a number of online sources that offer frozen and fresh albacore which you can order easily.

    For a simple appetizer, I sliced the albacore sashimi thinly, placed them on a plate and brushed with a garlic soy sauce. I then garnished the sashimi slices with grated ginger and scallions.  Everything takes just about 10 minutes to put together. The albacore is light and tender, and it soaks up the wonderful flavor of the tangy garlicky sauce. If you have some masago on hand, you can also garnish the fish roes on top of the albacore slices for even more attractive presentation.
