I bought another whole tuna on Sunday from a boat at the government wharf in Sooke. I massacred the beautiful albacore tuna.
I did this a couple of years ago and discovered how different a tuna is than any other fish I have cut up. I did an awful job of that one, I did not even know a tuna came in quarters and not halves. I thought I had learned enough to do a good job this time. I was wrong, so very, very wrong.
I started off fine, but soon my cutting actions were ripping the flesh in each quadrant and my handling of the fish was crushing the flesh. I ended up with a lot less fish than I wanted and it was not in solid chunks.
It is depressing to even look at the fish let alone cook with it. I am not sure where I am going to go with he tuna.
The prawns I got were amazing.
