Sushi-Grade Tuna in Seattle

Hey guys,

Looking for sushi-grade tuna to make some seared tuna tonight. Would I be better finding it at Whole Foods or Uwajimaya?

  1. Uwajimaya, hands down. Or if you want to go up the supply chain a little further, head down Rainier to Mutual Fish.

    I know that Uwajimaya has several types of sashimi-grade tuna in at the moment ranging from hot-pink (CO treated) frozen blocks of imported whatever to some pretty decent bluefin tuna at ~$41/lb.

    Don't forget the fresh wasabi, btw. It's in the produce section - one of the very few places in the US where mortals can reliably buy fresh wasabi at retail.

      You probably won't get many other responses to your post, because Terrier has hit the bulls eye with his reponse. There's really nothing to add.

          Went to Mutual Fish today to buy some items for making sushi. Employees were very helpful and offered good advice. I will def come back here for more seafood.
