what to do with fresh tuna belly?
« on: August 20, 2019, 12:52:05 PM »
ok, had a pretty successful trip tuna fishing this weekend, now I find myself in a predicament. What do I do with the belly!

also looking for any other go to recipes for tuna loin. I've never had fresh tuna in the fridge before, and I am a bit lost!

Smoke those bellies with brown sugar

Loins, Soak in yoshidas, seer outside on grill for a few minutes a side, pull off, slice and eat. Center should be raw.

Can with jalapenos.

Bellies are great canned. Smoke them up can with peppers. For lions marinate in Italian dressing and grill rare to med rare.

I smoke a lot of the loins too if I have a lot.  Pick your favorite marinate, rub, whatever and go to town.  I cut mine in to small medallions and then marinate or put with brown sugar/garlic/salt let sit in the fridge for 12-24hrs and put on the smoker.

Turn some of the bellies into crab, many people try to limit the amount they eat because fat is more concentrated there and that is where a bunch of the mercury resides.

It's good for any bait, halibut, probably ling cod, generally anything that eats fish.

i did convert 2 of them into 5 crab, to far away from the coast to use em for more of that though.
I only have 6 of them left, probably just going to smoke them the same way I would do a salmon belly.

thanks for all the tips so far!

 Montreal steak season (or seasoning of your choice ) grill bellies like a fatty ribeye, piss hot for a couple minutes and eat . Or ad a chunk to each jar of canned . Or grill with about anything really :chuckle:Theyre tasty ! Collars are good too .

For loins one of my favorite marinades is low sodium soy ,brown sugar,black pepper , onion powder,sesame oil, olive oil ,little red pepper flake. Let set for an hour 2 hours max (don't over marinate on this one). Sear and serve medium rare .

Bacon wrapped is good of course  :)Cook the bacon about halfway first so yo dont overcook tuna .

And about any POKE recipe is good with albacore . I prefer uising the leaner top loins for this

Fresh Tuna belly is some of the best sashimi there is. Nice and fatty. Skin it and eat it with a little soy. Oh yeah, baby.

Mmmm
I like it when Joe, my Chinese sushi guy, hits it quick with the torch. It gets that little bit of smokey flavor.
