Loews Lake Las Vegas Serves Up Replacements for High-Mercury Bluefin Tuna

February 7, 2008 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Loews Lake Las VegasIn light of the recent findings of high mercury levels in sushi-grade tuna, this news from Loews Hotel Lake Las Vegas is most welcome. Since its opening at the end of 2006, this desert oasis has been wowing its clients. (Just 17 miles from the Vegas Strip, the 25-acre resort has it all: shimmering pools, championship golf courses, a superb Moroccan-style spa, water sports on the lake.) And now Master Sushi Chef Osama "Fuji" Fujita, the only sushi chef in the U.S. to earn the Japanese Chefs Association's recognition of achievement in 2006-2007, has rolled out a handful of safe seafood suggestions for tuna lovers at the hotel's Marssa restaurant. Chef Fuji's Bluefin "Altunatives" include Hawaii's Bigeye Tuna, Yellowtail and Albacore. Other tips for tuna lovers: consider other lower-mercury choices such as shrimp, salmon, sea-eel, sea urchin, squid and scallops; opt for veggie selections; avoid shark, swordfish, king mackerel and tilefish, which have the highest mercury levels.
