Tuna Mercury Bullshit

January 30, 2008
WTF! I can’t live without tuna. Recent articles on NYT about mercury might be worrisome, and some people might never eat tuna ever, but I like tuna. If you are eating shit load of fried or junk food, and refusing seafood, that is such an oxymoron.

I am hoping this trend will cause reduction of tuna price, and I will have more of them. Everyone, listen up, moderation is the virtue, both in eating and drinking.

I would rather die from mercury consumption, than not eating tuna forever… So I made tuna tartar.

I am trying to be better about remembering what ingredients I use when cooking.
Recipe for this version is (which won’t be repeated since next time I’ll make it, I will use something completely different):

1/2 lb fresh tuna, cut into small cubes
1/2 of avocado, cut into small cubes
1/2 of mango, cut into small cubes
1/4 onion, minced and rinsed (to cut strong onion flavor out)
1 lemon juice
1 tbsp sesame oil
salt and pepper
dash of soy sauce
dash of ginger dressing
Mix everything together, and chill for about 1 hour to marinate.

I sliced up the rest of the avocado and spread it on the plate, scoop tartar with ice cream scoop, put extra ginger dressing et voila, cute and tasty tuna tartar is ready to be served.
