Yellow tail tuna ideas
« on: March 10, 2021, 01:57:57 PM »
So my neighbor just gave me a few vacuumed sealed packages of yellow tail tuna.
They look like large chunks of meat.
Maybe 2 pound chunks.

I like seared tuna sammiches.
I also would like some other ideas.

Any thoughts?

Thank you.

Andy.

I like to stake them and grill them with oyster sauce, make sure you remover the blood vein. Hot grill 3-4 minutes a side. Chicken of the sea

That sounds good, but exactly what is oyster sauce?
Is it just oyster juice from raw oysters or is it a processed thing?

When I was a commercial fisherman years ago we would season it and add a bit of bbq sauce wrap in aluminum foil and and bbq to it for a bit and serve it with a side of veggies and lots of beer.

I'd hit up H20Hunter for a poké recipe.

If it's been frozen hard for at least a couple weeks, slice and eat it.

Yellowfin tuna or yellowtail? 2 different fish with different meat.

Oyster sauce is a rich, syruplike sauce that is used in Chinese cuisine.

I had the same thought.  What is typically called "yellow tail" is actually a member of the amberjack family, at least around California and Mexico.  Still - good eating fish.  I've ate it raw as well as good and enjoyed both.

My bad.
I meant yellow fin tuna.
I have actually caught a bunch of yellow tail down south.
Totally a different fish.
Kinda like a steelhead trout looking fish with a yellow tail but not as tasty.
Once again, my bad.

So the other night we ate a new recipe for us that I made up.

It was raw wild caught rock fish marinated in lemon, onions and herbs for a few hours, then seared for near a half lminute on each side very hot with peanut oil.
Just enough to get a bit of the “crisp” in it and served on chicken flavored rice a roni with asparagus with Mayo as a side dish along with a Caesar salad.
Yum.

I would have call it savicci , but I apparently don’t know how to spell that word and spell check ain’t my friend today.

I think I will try that idea with these tuna chunks.

I do ok but I ain’t nothing special.
I am just me.
I weld stainless steel pipe for a living in San Francisco.

But my neighbor (for the last 35 years) makes me feel like a pauper at times.
He used to play pro ball but we love each other because we raised our kids together for all these years.

He left yesterday for an 18 day drip on the Royal Polaris for tuna in Mexico.

We are gonna get a bit more next month and if I pull a 20 thousand dollar bill out of my ass I am invited to go on the next trip.

Eff me.
