    This morning the deck hand of our local fisherman offered us some tuna of a tunafish that had accidently ended up in their nets.
    €10 a kilo…

    I know they’re not supposed to catch tuna but I tell you;

    Temperature in the low twenties, sitting outside on the terrace in the sun and eating thin slices of realy fresh raw tuna dipped in soy-sauce and wasabi…
    A glass of our own white wine…

    It doesn’t get much better than that.

    Once it’s dead and out of the water, no amount of guilt will bring it back and if you don’t buy it, someone else will. At least it wasn’t a dolphin or a whale.

    I know it’s a delicacy raw, but I don’t like it. We get it here a lot, a friend fishes them and always gives us a huge chunk. I lightly fry it otherwise it goes dry, but it’s not my favourite fish. We marinated the last lot which added a bit to the taste. My absolute favourite is the Tsipoura and Lavraki, fried or grilled with skin on and on the bone. Drool!

    Maybe that is why Ian mentioned wasabi and soya sauce?

    I love tuna, but the site of such a big lump in the back of a truck :roll:
    I rather see/buy fish at the seafront or at least kept on ice.
