Frozen maguro

Farknl | Jun 19, 2012 12:09 AM

My japanese girlfriend dont believe me when I say that most....say 90% of the maguro in Japan has been frozen at some point before you get it to eat ..... she watched something on Nippon tv and they said that there is unfrozen maguro available.... well where is that ? Ive caught Tuna [not off japan], and it needs freezing to kill bacteria and makes the meat better to eat .. otherwise ..straight after catching a Tuna ....day 1 meat is crunchy ..yes cruchy.!! day 2, softer texture , day 3 is perfect .. I believe that all tuna has some frozen time..lets face it they are caught way out to sea and are put straight into ice slurry after the ikijimi death spike.... please tell me otherwise ..I cant see anywhere online about how much is frozen ...too much wording abiguieties.. like the word "fresh "... still might imply its been snap frozen .. have you ever seen Tsukiji fish markets in Tokyo where they deal with frozen tuna daily ??? hmmmm I need to hear your facts ..cheers
