Tuna (Albacore, Ahi and Yellow-fin)

Eating fish just once or twice per week may reduce your chance of a fatal heart attack by a third, says MayoClinic.com. Tuna is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, among other valuable nutrients. Tuna steak is very different than the canned version and is often served cooked rare, crusted with spices or sesame seeds.

Types of Tuna 

Bluefin tuna and yellowfin, or ahi, tuna are the two types most commonly served in steak form. Yellowfin tuna is more common than bluefin and has a light, pale pink flesh. Albacore and skipjack tuna are rarely served as steaks and are most often canned.
