It is known as bluefin or bighorn tuna. It is a blue fish. And it is one of the most evolved and one of the greatest. It is a bony fish. The head, eyes and mouth are small. Its body is bluish gray with metallic reflections, especially on the belly. Its flesh ranges from pink to dark red. They form groups to feed and feed on small fish and crustaceans, but not all. They usually group together to mate. They only lay eggs once a year, so farmers control their photoperiod to be able to have eggs all year round.

Recipe and uses in cooking

The best way to eat bluefin tuna is in tartare or grilled but very rare, since if you cook it too much it will be too dry: to make a bluefin tuna tataki with sesame; In a bowl, mix 50ml of rice vinegar and 100ml of sola sauce with a teaspoon of ginger powder and a pinch of salt. Now you must cut the tuna loins and add them to the bowl, soaking each loin well. Let it rest for 1 hour. Once the time has passed, coat the sides of the tuna loins with toasted sesame seeds. In a previously heated frying pan, brown the loins for about 10 seconds on each side.
