Here what my better (worse?) half came up last night as a starter after she found a good bargain at our nearby Coop Supermarket. Plenty for two, the fish costing only 440 yen (US$ 4.50)!
From top left around the clock:
-Maguro akami (lean part of the tuna) thin sashimi topped with homemade pickled wasabi plant and Shizauok wasabi dressing.
-Maguro akami/maguro zuke (lean part of the tuna marinated Japanese style) topped with “shigeki rayu” (Chinese style hot sesame oil) dressing from Ishigaki Island, Okinawa.
-Negitoro (minced tuna semi-fat part, but without the usual chopped leeks) topped with “kizami tamanegi” (onion cream) dressing
The whole on a bed of fresh cress grown in our Prefecture. The perfect starter for her wine and my sake (I mean the drink!)
