So named, because it's yellowtail tuna, and, I saw it on Kitty's blog this morning.
Kitty Tuna! Nyuck, Nyuck, Nyuck.
My favorite recipe from ANY food blog is one in which I realize "Say, I have all of those ingredients. I can make this right now."
My second favorite recipe is when I say "Hey, I have everything except (insert one missing ingredient)."
Most others are "Man, that looks good. I should bookmark that."
Kitty's recipe on My Husband Hates Veggies (once she returned from being AWOL that is), was a second-favorite category. I had everything but the tuna, it looked great, and best of all, it had a sure-fire testimonial: She made it THREE TIMES in the short period of time her husband was gone. That must have been good eating because I would have had a lot more confessional meals to share.
I won't repeat Kitty's recipe here, but I'll mention my minor adaptations:
1) When mixing the dressing ingredients in step 1, I wanted it to emulsify somewhat, so, I used my bullet blender cup, and, added about a two-inch long squirt of wasabi from a tube.
2) I forgot to add the chopped cilantro to the dressing, so I added it afterward, on top of the tuna, with the avocado.
3) I used Schezwan pepper salt to season the tuna steaks, for a bit of added zest.
4) I didn't have a lime, but I had 3 key limes and used those.
Delicious! Top Notch and a sure-fire repeat. As easy as she promised, too.
