Tuesday with Tabby: I Love Tuna

Fresh from the sea....I just love watching the fish being prepared for cooking....this tuna is rather small compared to the usual 25kg ones I've seen.
What are those crabs doin there? Hmmm....let's concentrate on the tuna....I must say this particular fish is very....how shall I put it....bloody?
Fillets and cutlets...hmmm...delightful morsels of tuna they are....
This is tuna umai, umai is a kind of raw fish salad Sarawak style...very refreshing and yummy......the fish must be very very fresh to make this.
Tuna soup Mabul style....I looooove this too...
Brad's note: We've also tasted tuna barbequed, curried and fried. I looooove them all. Even the canned variety. Please bring some home the next time you go there, Mama! har har har *evil laughs*

Hi Cat, wow! I love this posting! Nice well taken pics too. I love tuna in whatever style cooking.
That umal of Sarawak? First time hearing or seeing it. Bet it taste fantastic.

I remember long ago when doing deep sea fishing I hooked a monster tuna about 70 pounds! Took me about 45 minutes before I could land it....my arms aching fighting with it. It had dragged out more than 150 yards of my line too.
You have fun, keep well.
Lee.

Uncle Lee,
Would you believe that these photos were taken with a mobile phone? Anyway, they taste wayyyyy better than those bought in the cities. I can imagine you fighting to catch the fish...while I just wait on shore....har har har *evil laughs*
