The Instacart guide to tuna fillets


About tuna fillets

It's likely that you've had a tuna fish sandwich made with canned tuna at some point, but not everyone has had a chance to try fresh tuna fillets. There are many types of tuna are swimming in the sea, but when it comes to what you'll find on the shelves in grocery stores, Yellowfin tuna is one of the most prevalent varieties. Other types of tuna you might find in your local supermarket include:
  • Albacore
  • Bluefin
  • Bigeye
  • Skipjack
Tuna is a larger species, which means there is a lot of meat per fish. Bluefin tuna is the largest species and can weigh as much as 400 pounds. Other tuna species average 10 to 20 pounds. You can get fresh tuna as steaks or fillets, and frozen and canned tuna is also an option. Most sushi restaurants use tuna in their rolls, as some fish species can be consumed raw. Uncooked tuna is red in color with a firm texture. It's available all year, but you'll get the freshest fillets during the summer months, from May to September.

When picking out your tuna fillets, you want to look for meat with a dark red color that appears moist and is free of dark spots, especially near the edges. Avoid tuna fillets with a strong odor. You can store your tuna fillets in the back of your refrigerator for up to two days, but if you don't plan on cooking them within a day or two of buying them, store them in the freezer. When placed in an airtight container, they should be last in the freezer for three to six months.
