$4,000 Dry Aged Tuna Sushi 🍣

Bluefin tuna is a staple in the world of sushi. Perfectly balanced and melt in your mouth, a fresh piece of Bluefin is hard to beat. Then, there’s dry aged tuna… which is in a world of its own.

The most significant improvement was texture. Bluefin tuna (especially the lean “Akami”) can sometimes be chewy. I was shocked to find that even pieces with many white fibers, disintegrated the moment they touched my mouth.

Flavor came next. With dry aged beef, we expect “nutty” or even “blue cheesy” notes. This was different. Instead of a flavor change, it was more of a flavor enhancement. As I mention in the video, it tasted like tuna in its truest form.

I want to give a huge thank you to Liwei (dry_aged_fish_guy on IG) . His guidance through this process is the only reason I was able to make it happen. He has a saying: “Fresh is boring”. It took 4 weeks of work for me to finally understand what that means.

    I tried ahi tuna not to long ago and it was just seared on both sides for about 45 seconds so it was still raw in the middle and I couldn’t get passed the thought of raw fish and I had to spit it out but it tasted really good. Love the videos max!

    It took me 6 hours to get to the Cape as well some I’m guessing your not that far away from me. If u ever want bluefin again let me know you’ll get it for 1/4 the price. 4K for a 50 pound fish is absolutely insane robbery. That’s 80$ a pound

    You may want to look into “ike-jime” to really take your bluefin tuna dry aging to the fullest flavor potential. The Japanese have been doing sushi for thousands of years and ike-jime is known to produce some of the best quality. I noticed when you were trimming the bloodline that the fish was not properly dispatched.

    My favourite part of the bluefin is chutoro. It’s got the perfect balance. I feel like otoro is so rich that I can only eat a few pieces before feeling rly full. Nonetheless, great video :)
