Rom, the tuna was over cooked if it was like chicken!! Try the shark or snapper as they work well and are easy gets in Oz. A couple of the posts on page two said to put the chunks of raw fish into the warmed curry sauce and only heat for a couple of minutes. That's the way I would do it. Haven't tried it for an Indian curry but have for a Thai green (or was it red??) curry. The swordfish would work well too. You could also try blue eye cod (which isn't a cod at all). Huey is always using that on his shows so it is also an easy get on your side of the country.

Next time you want to try tuna, cook it in some teriyaki sauce with either noodles or rice. Just sear on both sides as it will continue cooking when out of the pan. you still want it to be darkish in the middle. Yum!! Shark and salmon work well like this too although cook the salmon more than the tuna, and the shark more than the salmon.

Yeah, EEl isn't bad at all. Although it's not something you can get that easily in a normal fishmarket round here. If i go an hour away probably easy to find...but unless i got some ice and stuff, well that eel's going to go yuk lol
