Skipjack and Blackfin Tuna Sashimi

Both were delicious but, in my opinion, the Skipjack is better.
The Skippy has better texture and more pronounced flavor.
By the way the Skipjack fights a A LOT harder than the Blackfin!

    The skipjack is the lighter colored sashimi on the plate? what a pronounced difference in the color of the meat!

    Actually, the Skipjack is the darker colored sashimi sitting atop the shredded nori on the bottom of the plate, the BFT is the lighter colored sashimi sitting on the shredded romain on top.
    Yes, there is a big difference in color, texture and flavor....Skipjack rules!

    Me too!
    But if I had some Kirin or Sapporo in the fridge I would have served that with this dish instead ;)

    Yes, many many years ago, off the Pacific side of the Baja peninsula I kept a skipjack and tried it the same way you eat it and it was delicious. I don't know how many hundred skipjack we've released but after eating that one we occasionally kept one. Your dish looked a lot better than mine but it probably tasted the same.
