I would like them separate. Some things need to be in a solo performance.

Welcome!

I also think that there's just too many conflicting flavors going on as well as two separate dishes.

I'm not totally in agreement with this combo, either. The ravioli sounds good on its own.

Tuna, you need to be very careful not to overcook, so I would advise against blackening it. Searing yes. Blackening no. Overcooking will turn a succulent piece of fish into a dry, grayish mass.

I also agree the crab and tuna would be better in different dishes.

Blackening is just searing a protein that was covered in spices, no? We usually do our tuna that way. Just a minute or so per side in a cast-iron skillet preheated for about 10 minutes. Comes out nice and rare.

I would love the crab ravioli on its own. And, I would love tuna steak, but the two combined...well, I think that it might be too much.

Buon Girono,

In my opinion, I would not serve Ravioli over any fish ... However, I am half Italian, and thus, do not combine other cuisines with Italian ...

These two dishes could be delightful dishes all on their own ...

Have a lovely summer,
Margi. Ciao.
