As anyone who orders sushi grade fish online knows, good quality fish arrives frozen to preserve its freshness. While some may scratch their heads about the best way to thaw their fish, we have a simple video to highlight the most effective and safest way to thaw your fish, without requiring any special methods. It’s actually quite simple, watch and see!
Inspired by Giada De Laurentiis’s Halibut Ceviche recipe, I thought to myself that we can use our MSC Certified Albacore Tuna (Shiro Maguro) instead of halibut.
Here’s the ingredient and step-by-step cooking tips,
- One 10-ounce albacore loin, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (from 2 large lemons)
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (from 3 to 4 large limes)
- Zest of 1 large lemon
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Direction: In an glass or ceramic baking dish(or just a glass bowl), mix together the Albacore, lemon juice, lime juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Cover the dish and refrigerate for 3 hours, stirring halfway through the refrigeration time to distribute the marinade. When the meat turns into white, that means the acidity is working its magic! After 3 hours or so, it’s ready to be served! You can accommodate this wonderful dish with Tortilla chips so it’s easy to eat and fun to eat!
