Tuna Sashimi with Avocado Salad

Tuna-Sashimi-with-Avocado-Salad Further Food

When buying tuna to eat raw, it must be “sushi grade”, which means that they are frozen and stored at a low temperature once caught, in order to kill bacteria.

To test the freshness of the fish follow your nose — if it smells fishy, don’t buy it. It should have a neutral aroma. The color should be beautifully opaque and even — tuna ranges from blush pink to deep red, depending on the species. Touch it — it should be firm yet yielding; if it’s tough, walk away.

Further Food Commentary:

Similar to the fat content of olive oil, each tablespoon of sesame oil contains 13.6 g of fat, with 1.9 g of saturated fat. Olive oil has a milder taste and is the preferred option for daily cooking while sesame oil's bolder flavor composition is better for Asian stir frys and recipes. As a calorie, sodium free condiment, this vinegar can aid in reducing hypertension and reduce risk of cancer, heart disease and osteoporosis due to its rich phenolic compounds.
