You can tune a piano…

July 15, 2011

but, as they say, you can’t tuna fish…

Or can you?

Over the past couple of years or so, I’ve become a huge fan of the chop-up-some-fresh-tuna-and-mix-with-tasty-seasonings type of dishes that seems to be showing up everywhere… from several restaurants at Disney, to the Eating (and Drinking) Around the World kitchens, and even my favorite local haunt…

You take some nice raw tuna, cube or mince, add some seasoning, let sit just a bit and enjoy! Usually a crispy chip of some sort is the mechanism for moving the goodness to your mouth, and the fish may be garnished with various goodies or perhaps just served simply… Asian flavors are, not surprisingly, common, but the meaty fish also marries quite well with Latin flavors.

So, let’s take a quick visual tour, shall we?

So yes, I think you can tune a fish – to your tastes that is… recipes will follow… eventually, of course…

Back to the kitchen…
