    Does anyone recognize this Japanese offering? The one thing I miss moving from the west coast are the sushi bars, so I rarely ever get to one anymore. I saw this pic and wanted to know what it is, so that I could try it at the next opportunity. I used to make my own sushi, but fresh raw ocean fish is hard to come by up here. Thanks for any help.

    Tuna, slightly cooked on each side, then rolled in fish eggs (the greenish/yellowish ?) and black sesame seeds, then sliced.

    I guess you got prairie oysters in Montana.

    I think I'd choose tuna over that :lol:

    Is there a name for this other than ahi tuna. I have never seen it prepared this way, but thanks for describing it to me.

    Most sushi grade fish is flash-frozen on the boat. They go to like -60F to kill the parasites. You can get it shipped in - for a fee.

    Ooooh, "tuna tataki". Sounds like the proper term. I now have something to search. Doumo Arigato.

    Thank you. You have no idea how often I have considered this. Ironically, a good friend of mine in California orders his venison frozen from Pennsylvania.:rolleyes::lol:

    Ahi is another name for yellowfin. The preparation can be done on other types of fish as well.
