i just threw away the last i bought from von's which is safeway. cooked first piece about a month ago. tasted just awful, couldn't even eat it. tasted off. i froze the rest, keep telling myself i would eat it . two months and i didn't so tossed it. kills me to throw away food. but if it tastes off it probably is. my son gets his at a local market privately owned and is never disappointed. but man is it pricy.

I have bought the frozen Trader Joe's tuna several times. I usually buy the tuna steaks that are already vacuum sealed in a marinade. They are pretty good grilled. I believe this tuna is flash frozen right on the boat so this might explain why it isn't a vibrant red color - ? Not sure. I'm sure Whole Food tuna is leaps and bounds better but I won't be paying $20/lb for it to find out.

Looking back on the Safeway tuna, it wasn't too great. It had a slightly mealy consistency and was definitely nowhere near the quality of Whole Foods. I won't be buying it again.

I'll keep trying different places. TJ's and HT's next (I found out my Costco doesn't have the frozen vacuum sealed ones, only fresh ones very rarely and usually only one or two packages of it). If nothing fits the bill, back to Whole Foods I go, haha.

Check out this article on tuna, kinda sucks they have to resort to this:
