I know, some people turn their noses up at "Uncooked Fish" but I happen to like it, but mostly the Tuna, I don't go in for the squid, octopus or fish eggs stuff, I like the real red meat, the Tuna!
As I live in Japan, I do like Sushi, in fact I enjoyed it when I lived in Vancouver before I came here. Now if you like Sushi, do you like Sashimi?
Sashimi is the fish, without the rice. If it is "Good" Sashimi, I like it better than Sushi.
Tonight one of my neighbours dropped in, he works at >> Tsukiji << the fish market in Tokyo. He has been educating me on the various kinds of Tuna.
Tonight he dropped off some chunks of Tuna, two chunks of "Chu-Toro" and one chunk of "Akami" total of 650 grams (just under 1 1/2 pounds!) I'd bet retail it would be close to $80
Here are the three chunks, frozen solid........

And this is what they should look like all ready to eat.....
Akami (red meat tuna)
Chu-Toro (Medium Fat Tuna)
The very best cut comes from the belly of the tuna, this is called Toro, and the very best Toro is the -Toro, it is unreal, so nice, it just about melts in your mouth. The Chu-Toro also from the belly, but not the very bottom of the belly, still, it is VERY good.
This will be part of Sunday dinner for sure!
