Team ARSC's Signature Albacore Tuna Recipe's

We get asked every trip "what's the best way to cook Albacore tuna", and the answer is...just about any and every way you can imagine from raw, seared, and cooked.

Albacore tuna shares many of the same nutritional advantages as other types of tuna. It's a rich source of complete protein, selenium and vitamin B-12. However there are a few differences. Albacore is a better source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids than other tuna species. Even though albacore tuna has less fat than meat and poultry, it’s a rich source of essential omega-3 fatty acids that lower your risk of heart disease. It contains the two types of omega-3 fatty acids -- EPA and DHA -- that lower triglycerides, slow the growth of atherosclerotic plaques and prevent arrhythmias. (sfgate.com)

Whether the Albacore you take home is caught on one of our charters by you or a fish we caught on commercial endeavors, the fish you leave the dock with will be the highest quality by always bleeding and iceing our catch shortly after capture.
