      Maguro. Japan's best-loved sashimi.
      RECOMMENDED
      04.27.2016

      Maguro. Japan's best-loved sashimi.

      Deep-sea fishing vessels chase maguro (tuna) around the world to meet demand throughout the year in Japan. Maguro is also caught more locally off the coast of Japan in the spring and summer. At any time of the year, we recommend trying various cuts of maguro. The most sought-after part is the rich and fatty belly, called otoro (fatty tuna), which is somewhat expensive. The firmer, reddish akami (lean) and chutoro (medium‐fatty tuna) are also flavorful and quite popular. More uncommon parts worth trying include the cheek and top of the head. Why not try them all and discover your favorite part! Tuna in Japan is generally eaten as sashimi or sushi, but some parts are best enjoyed simmered or grilled with salt.
