Your tuna has set sail to much excitement. Check out last night’s dinner of sashimi over noodles by fellow backer, Iron Spike. (I’m guessing nobody picked on her in school with that name.)
Fish can be intimidating, but we're here to change that.
1. As soon as your package arrives, perform your quick happy dance. Immediately afterwards, place contents in freezer. Home freezer temperatures fluctuate, so best practice is to place lots of frozen gel packs (or water in :) amongst your food. The colder your freezer, the happier fish are. Enjoy within 2-5 months.
2. Ready to eat? Place fish in fridge ~24 hours before eating. I put fish on the back of the bottom shelf. (This tends to be the coldest spot in your refrigerator.)
3. A half hour before eating, raw or cooked, place on counter to bring closer to room temperature. This is a good move before cooking meats too.
4. Enjoy using one of the recipes below or come up with your own there, Emeril!

QUICK & EASY:
My go-to tuna steak recipe: Marinate in soy sauce and wasabi for 20 minutes. Cover in cracked pepper or sesame seeds. Sear on hot cast iron pan. Flip when it’s cooked 2/5 up. Cut into the middle to control how rare you want it. (Keep in mind steaks continue cooking after removing from heat.)
My go-to sashimi recipe: Place on top of rice. Enjoy with soy sauce and wasabi. Boom!
