Yellowfin tuna is a favorite on restaurant menus across the country. Favored for its presentation both rare to medium cooked, the firm texture and mild, meaty flavor is often described by consumers as tasting like a great piece of beef. The natural red color is captured with the use of CO and the ideal look is a bright white translucent red. Whether raw or cooked, the fish flavor is hearty enough to stand up to strong seasoning and flavors. Phillips Yellowfin tuna is safe to eat raw and meets the FDA regulations for consuming raw.
