A week ago (there's so much activity on the forum now that a week means page FOUR of the forum) i asked for ideas re: fish.
Fishless chimed in with about thirty ideas. ...this was one of them
This was maybe the BEST new dish i have done in a year. He makes the point that it works well for overcooked fish. I had to cook one of the steaks a little more done than I'd like, and it really was fine.
Here's the thing i really liked about it. it messed with my mind. At the root of it, it looks like a basic teryaki marinade. I was expecting 'sweet'. Got a little nervous when cooking the marinade because frankly, I couldn't get a handle on the flavors. I was literally concerned that maybe some of the measurements were off (did he mean tsp or TBSP??!?!).
it came together right at the end, when the marinade got reheated as the steaks cooked. I plated the tuna on mixed greens, spooned some of the chunkier bits of the marinade on the steak, and spooned the warm marinade sauce over top and on the greens, to wilt them a bit.
I also added fresh blueberries (chilean, but hey) to the marinade when it was reheating (so they'd soften), and put some uncooked ones on top, too, when serving. The fresh ones were a nice counterpart to the softness of the others. served with cubed sweet potatoes, roasted at high heat.
Perfect amount of heat on the lips from the Jamaican Firewalk (Dizzy Pig rub). I'm pretty sure that was a fishlessman modification to what he says was an old LL Bean recipe.
anyway... long post. but DO try this if you want a real surprise. Nothing like i was expecting, and ten times better than i'd hoped.
