When learning how to cook tuna steaks, you will want to know a little about the different types of tuna. When I buy canned tuna, I always get the white albacore; I like it so much better than the darker colored canned tuna. It is different when I am purchasing fresh tuna steaks to cook.
When I first learned how to cook tuna steaks, I looked for albacore steaks because I liked it in the cans. It has a very mild flavor and is very expensive so I thought it to be the best. I was convinced by a close friend that I would prefer the bluefish tuna over all the others. I found he was right; it has more oil in the meat and has a really good flavor. It is great for grilling which is why I wanted it.
I was also educated on the ahi tuna (some also call yellowfin tuna), which is what is so often served when eating out in the restaurants. I also really like the flavor of that but I think the bluefish is better. The ahi or yellowfin is more economical to purchase than the bluefish and is usually more readily available in the fish markets.
