Tuna, Tuna, and More Tuna

Been really busy so haven't been able to post much lately. Top Chef season 2 was a joke. That's all I have to say about that.

Here's something that I was working on lately. It's basically a variation of Ahi tuna with five different preparations ranging from simple to complex.

Starting from the top left hand corner and going clockwise around the plate:

1. Simply Sushi - Yellowfin Tuna Nigiri with Wasabi, Soy Sauce, and Ginger
2. Simply Sashimi - Big Eye Tuna with Wasabi, Soy Sauce, and Shiso
3. Ceviche - Yellowfin Tuna with Yuzu, Seaweed, Scallion, Jalapeno, Ginger, and Uni "Fondue"
4. "Torched" Tartare - Yellowfin Negitoro (fatty tuna belly) flash seared with a blowtorch, Shiso, Scallions, Truffle Oil, Tobiko, Cucumber-Basil Gelee
5. Ahi "Soba" - Big Eye Tuna with Transglutaminase, Japanese-style Pickled Vegetables, Ponzu Vinaigrette

Lovely presentation, IC~
I particularly like the look of the ceviche, myself.

Very impressive!

The only thing is that the fish doesn't look as vibrant as it acutally is because of the lighting in the kitchen.

Oh man do those all look good! I thought that fish looked very vibrant, especially the sashimi. I can't imagine what it must really look like.
