Best Served:
*Great for making sandwiches and salads
*Tuna Steak with Japanese-styled sauce
*Raw. If your fish is great quality and very fresh, and you have a good sharp knife
*Ceviche. This cooks the fish with acid, rather than heat
*Seared. You only need to add rub enough oil into the surface of the fish to prevent it from sticking to a hot griddle or flat pan
*Steamed. Often with aromatics. In a bowl to catch the juices, or wrapped in a loose but well-sealed package of foil or greaseproof paper (en papillote). En papillote Is often done in quite a hot oven: the package enforces steaming inside, so that the fish isn't exposed to fierce heat
