The doggy in the window!
As promised I have taken a few pictures of filleting, preparing and cooking the Dog Tooth Tuna as well as using the yellowfin as high end sashimi. Plus a little image of “to the victor goes the spoils”. One certainty when I am filleting tuna is the other chefs hovering and shaving any left-overs from the bone, straight into a soy/wasabi mix and an instant lunch. We tried both the Dog Tooth and Yellowfin side by side with the yellowfin having a slight edge but to sear and cook with it is the dog tooth by a country mile.
In order of appearance.

How much is that doggy in the window? (sorry oldies will know what I mean)
Dinner is served…seared and sliced rare with ratatouille
Yellowfin the best way.
