This was a wonderful summery appetiser. I was a bit worried that the flavour of the fresh tuna would be lost beneath all of the ingredients, but my fears were groundless. The marinade perfectly augmented the taste and texture of the fish. I had some trouble tracking down the ogo, and grabbed something that sounded similar from the local oriental grocer. When I got home and tried to re-hydrate it, the overwhelming scent of tired, hot stinking seawater filled the kitchen, and my husband whisked the pan out to the compost heap, lol. I added some black sesame seed in for colour contrast, and didn't miss the seaweed one bit. Thanks for a great recipe- we've already made this a few times.
