Viognier, pronounced 'vee-ohn-yay' which is also a great wine to pair with Sushi. The wine's flavours went incredibly well with the dressing, which is the most prominent flavour in the dish. I couldn't find Pea Shoots if my life depended on it! I subbed in baby arugula which worked ok but I think something milder would be better.
I bought a Voignier last week, I was so excited to as we had one last year that was lovely. However much to my surprise it was a white. For some reason I didn't even think about this when I picked up the bottle.
Silly me! It was still delicious, and I am sure a white is what you are referring to anyways! thanks Patrick.
I am making this tonight for the first time for my husband! I'm getting the tuna from Whole Foods so it should be good quality. Do you think it would be a good idea to also put down some toasted sesame seeds along with the salt and pepper? This is typically how I see it in restaurants...what do you think?
The jar from Whole Foods calls them "toasted" already (but really, they look raw to me)...I put them down with the salt and pepper, rolled in the tuna and then seared it...we loved it! The only thing is that the tuna's crust came out a bit too salty for us, so I will probably cut down on the salt for next time, and instead increase the pepper and seeds. Thank you so much for this recipe. I am having a wonderful time on your site as a newbie! :-)
So glad that you had success and that you enjoyed the tuna. Of course we are also thrilled that you are having a good time with Rouxbe :-)
If you are like Tuna then you might like this recipe for "Rice Cracker-Crusted Tuna" from chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. I have eaten 3 times now (at his restaurant here in Vancouver) and it is delicious. I have it on my list of "things to make" but I have not found the time to do so. Cheers!
This recipe calls for ahi tuna, which we think is the best for this recipe. I am not sure what you mean by "can I use tuna at the grocery store"? If by this you mean, can I buy the fresh tuna from the fish counter at my local grocery (if it is extremely fresh and healthy looking) then yes is the answer.
You may also find it helpful to watch the lesson on Buying and Storing Fish as this will guide you into what to look for when you are purchasing your fish. Cheers!
A couple of friends came over this evening with some yellowfin tuna they had caught yesterday, about 8 miles outside the reef that surrounds our Island (Yap, FSM)
They had fried some up the day before, but brought me over a couple of fillets to prepare. I had never cooked tuna before, and had no idea what I was doing... but this lesson and this recipe came to the rescue. Wow! What a great meal we had. They were absolutely blown away by the flavors... and the presentation. It was fun to see them so amazed at how much better this meal was than what they had cooked themselves the night before.
The Wasabi-lime vinaigrette is the perfect complement to this dish! Wow! All I can say is wow! Rouxbe, you made me look like a pro tonight!
I made this and it came out great. I want to use this as a dish for a dinner I'm going to make for a few friends. What are some dishes you would suggest to accompany this (perhaps other courses)?
One idea I hads was that since this is a cold dish (temperature wise) I could preceed it with a hot soup like the Cream of Asparagus -- would that work?
Having this as a side-dish with a soup is a great idea! The tuna is quite rich, and so it does need something to go with it. I can't get get the cool looking plates that are shown in the video, nor can I get pea shoots. So I had a little almond and garlic rice pilaf, cucumber slices, and green coleslaw to finish off the plate.
We had it with the Thai Coconut Squash soup elsewhere on this site. The whole meal was amazing. Cream of Asparagus sounds like it would be perfect. I just wish I could get fresh asparagus where I live!
I used radish sprouts (live with root mat) and it was great. My vinaigrette was bitter maybe because the picked ginger had an odd taste even though it was the one with no preservatives. I decided to add a touch of agave and grated fresh ginger to bring it up to speed. Ever since I learned to properly heat a pan everything comes out great, especially this. One more time, thanks be to Rouxbe!
