A lot of the appeal of sushi is in its presentation. Connoisseurs are accustomed to striking colors, from the stark white of the rice to the bold pink of the tuna fish. Some people therefore believe that fresh, good quality tuna is necessarily going to have the same strong pink color. However, this is not always going to be the case.
In truth, pink tuna is not always going to be the freshest. Sometimes tuna is treated with carbon monoxide to artificially give it the pink that people like. If you ever find yourself shopping for tuna, so long as it isn’t turning brown around the edges, you should be able to expect the same great taste that you can expect at our Issaquah sushi restaurant.
