From Williams-Sonoma Kitchen. This is what they say in their intro. A member of the mackerel family, tuna is a large fish with rich, oily, firm flesh. This recipe calls for ahi tuna, also known as yellowfin, a variety that is slightly more flavorful than the mild-tasting albacore. Because its meat is oily and firm, tuna takes well to grilling and pan roasting.
