Tuna Belly | Fresh Fish Box | Caught off Cape Point
This catch of the day features fresh Yellowfin Tuna Belly. This tuna has been locally and sustainably caught by our Pole fisherman, one hook, one line, one fish at a time. We have carefully selected for you to enjoy with your family or friends.
Fresh Yellowfin Tuna Belly (total +-800g-1000g per box )
Fresh Tuna Belly is the “foie gras” of tuna. It is like eating Wagyu beef compared to eating a plain old shop bought steak. Fresh Tuna belly or “toro" is generally considered the king of all sushi ingredients in Japan.
This box is ideal for any fish lover to add some variety into their week day cooking or on the braai. We have taken care of the mess, you look after the rest. Your fish will arrive vacuum packed, to make it easy to use at home
InstructionsYour yellow fin tuna belly will arrive fresh, simply store in your fridge, and use at your leisure (up to 5 days). For home freezing, freeze on the day of arrival, and use within 3 months. Yellowfin tuna flesh colour may change colour from a light pink to light brown once frozen (this is normal).
All our Yellowfin Tuna is caught with a pole and line (one fish at a time) by fishermen in the cold waters off Cape Point. This method of catch is rated green by SASSI with the lowest discard rates and least possible impact on ocean ecology.

Most great seafood recipes are heroing the flavours and freshness of the catch itself. The Fishwife shows us how to get the most out of Greenfish tuna belly. You will need:
- Greenfish Yellowfin Tuna Belly
- Salt & Pepper
- Japanese 7 spice (or 5 spice)
- 1/3 Cup Teriyaki Sauce
- 3 Tbsp Sesame Oil (can substitute with olive oil)
- 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
- Sprinkle the 7 spice, salt & pepper to both sides of the steaks. (You do not need to use a lot of the 7 spice as it has some heat to it!).
- In a glass dish marinate the Tuna Belly in the Teriyaki Sauce, Sesame Oil and Lemon Juice for at least 45 minutes. (You can leave overnight in the fridge).
- Heat the pan on high heat and quickly pan fry the steaks. Thin steaks will take approximately 1 minute per side and thicker steaks approximately 2 minutes per side.

The freshness of the sea
My first taste of Tuna Belly. Absolutely delicious. Not as rich as I was expecting. (In my search for tuna belly in Johannesburg I managed to source some Salmon belly. Very rich) I must still try The Fish Wife’s recipe, looking forward to it. I must admit that I did try having a small piece as sushi which I did not enjoy, but then I don't know how the Japanese would have prepared it.
Still smelling of the Sea
This was my first order. It was a bigger piece than I expected and I cut it in half. In retrospect I should have used two different recipes for the 2 pieces. The Fishwife recipe was was good, but it does overpower the natural taste of the Toro. Will definitely order again.
Had never heard of it before. I used the recipe of the "fishwife lady" and ...hm.. how delicious that was. Even the leftover for the next day cold!!! Please inform us when you get new tunabelly. kind regards U. Ehrhardt
I come from Spain and there tuna belly is considered delicacy and is consumed both fresh and canned in olive oil. This was tender, full of healthy, delicious fat, clean and huge. As for The rest of The aspects, as always: timely delivery, impecable packaging,… Superb!
Amazing It is a very rich and fatty meat but really tasty
Good quality. Service is seriously excellent and couldn’t be happier.
The tuna belly was excellent, I served it with ratatouille and a little jasmine rice. I will order next time eyes closed.
Tuna Belly - Absolutely Beautiful
We had an order of the Tuna Belly delivered and as always Green Fish exceeds expectations. From wonderful customer service, the friendly and polite delivery team and the absolute freshest fish, a big thank you Green Fish. In terms of the Tuna Belly itself, and trying it for the first time, we used the Fish Wife's Teriyaki Tuna Belly Recipe and were absolutely blown-away by how wonderful it was. The belly was so tender and soft once grilled, it pulled apart with gentlest of touches from a fork, and it simply melted in the mouth. The description as the "foie gras of tuna" is no exaggeration. The recipe was delicious and we served it with Sushi rice with toasted black and white sesame seeds and scallions, grilled Pak Choi and a wasabi and Japanese Mayo and it was absolutely beautiful. It was truly a treat and will definitely be ordering again. Thank you again to the Green Fish team and keep up the great work!
I love tuna but never tried the belly. Now I a hooked. Tender, juicy and tasty. I soaked it in soy sauce and lemon juice and seared it quickly in the pan. Wow. I will recommend it to all my friends.
Greenfish must be one of the best kept secrets. Excellent quality tuna belly, as fresh as can be. Just love the environmentally friendly and sustainable approach. Impressed with the packaging. Promptly delivered
Fresh Fresh Fresh - as Always from Greenfish
Reliable , Quality ,Fresh , Beautifully presented and delivered to your Home the next Day — All great reasons why I use Greenfish for all my seafood purchases. I wish they would incorporate a “ Packaging and portioning “ choice -box so I can request portion size If they did then everything would be perfect. But I will still use them even if they don’t!
What a treat this was. We ate some as sashimi and then seared a few pieces. Absolutely delectable
Amazingly fresh and tender
First time cooking and eating tuna belly. Amazing taste and quality! We will definitely be back for more.
Super Fresh and unctuous, fabulous quality, can't beat
Love this product, sushi, sashimi, grilled for luxe tuna salad, can't go wrong. Just seldom available but makes it more special. I find it freezes really well too. Would be good to receive it with each belly separately vacu packed?
Top quality Tuna
The freshness and quality was unquestioned. Made a delicious ceviche for Boxing Day lunch.
Marinated in soy sauce and put in tacos with guacamole Delicious!
Amazing fresh products, beautifully packaged. Will definitely order again.
Tuna belly belly good
Had the tuna belly as sashimi the day it arrived and it was lovely. Tuna Steak cuts were marinated with light soy sauce, sesame oil and pepper and placed in freezer. Have had two steaks and it still tastes as fresh as the day it arrived. Yes, this tuna belly is belly belly good!
