I have two nice tuna filets marinating in some soy/garlic/ginger/sesame oil/sherry thanks to all of your suggestions. Been marinating an hour.[p]Just got a call from the missuz, and she and the kids are eating at grandmas.[p]Should I cook both the filets, and eat a leftover filet tomorrow?? Or can I pull one out of marinade, wrap and cook tomorrow??? Not sure if the marinade will break it down too far, or change the texture.[p]Thanks for any tips!

    Nature Boy,[p]Cook both and vaccum seal the spare. Reheat slowly in the microwave using low power. If the bag tends to expand, you are cooking it more. It will not be quite as good as fresh cooked, but will be very close.[p]Spin

    Nature Boy,
    I agree...cook it....the sherry would break down the salmon and "cook" it in it's own way, like lemon juice would do to scallops.
    Have you ever had Scallops Ceviche ? It never cooks...the lemon juice just breaks it down in the "marinade" process, and it appears to be cooked when you eat it as an appetizer
    (usually). Anyway, maybe it'll be so good you'll eat two.

    BD,
    It was good, but I couldn't even finish one! Like Jerry? said the other day, it is pretty dense. Filet #2 is cooling to room temp b4 I vacuum seal it. [p]The marinade was great, and the 1 clove of garlic I used was plenty. The ginger, sesame oil and soy was the perfect accompaniment. I covered the one I ate with grains of paradise, and tomorrows with black pepper. The GOP was awesome on the tuna.[p]Thanks

    Nature Boy,
    I always prepare more than we can eat at one serving. You're right; tuna is very filling. I sear it rare, then refrigerate the remains and slice it thin the next day to use on salads or in sandwiches. I think I actually prefer it as a leftover.[p]As another suggestion, sometimes I poach seafood (white fish, scallops, shrimp, whatever) in white wine and chicken stock with sliced fennel, sweet red pepper, onion, garlic, ginger, carrot and soaked bean thread noodles. I sear a piece of yellowfin tuna (coated with grains of paradise) briefly, slice it thin, and lay it as a garnish on top of the soup/stew. Then I sprinkle it with fresh chopped cilantro and drizzle with sriracha. The hot broth cooks the rare tuna a bit more, and it's SO tender and delicious. This is one of our favorite quick fixes.

    Gretl,
    Man, you have a way with words.....AND food! Sounds incredible. Glad I did cook that other guy yesterday...looks like cooking time will be limited for a while. My buddy the Fedex man, just brought me a 2 and a half inch thick pile of hardcopy, and a zip disk, that has a couple hundred pages of text, tables, charts to typeset.[p]Nothing like a boatload of work. So much for a slow summer.
    Tuna sammiches for lunch!![p]Thanks
