Of 26 samples of fish that were labeled “yellowtail”, 92 percent of them were from Japanese Amberjack, not Yellowtail Amberjack as the name would imply. Place a perilla leaf in the centre of each serving plate. If you’ve ever been confused by all the Japanese names associated with “yellowtail” at sushi restaurants, you’re not alone. Ponzu is a very handy dressing to have – it can keep many months in the fridge. I then filled the centre with suitable vegetables I had on hand, i.e. Serve immediately. On the other hand, ponzu is often used with a spicy condiment called momiji oroshi, which is made by grating daikon and chillies together (see the next section). For Marc, food is a life long journey of exploration, discovery and experimentation and he shares his escapades through his blog in the hopes that he inspires others to find their own culinary adventures. Heat a frying pan with oil over high heat. When the frying pan becomes hot, place the tuna blocks on one long side at the bottom. Hi Nicola, I have not seen the exact shape like the block that I seared. In my Ponzu recipe, I listed lemon or lime juice. When are you making this for family dinner?? It is called this because the red colour of the daikon resembles the autumn momiji (Japanese maple tree) leaves. But the most popular authentic ponzu dressing is made with a Japanese citrus fruit called ‘yuzu’ (ゆずor 柚), which is tart and fragrant – close to grapefruit but not so sweet. In my posts Japanese-style Kingfish Tartare (Kingfish Tataki) and Bonito Tataki (Seared Bonito) I talked about two Japanese cooking methods called ‘tataki’ (たたき). Place the chillies inside the incision vertically, then hold the daikon firmly so that the chillies do not fall out. The thickness needs to be no less than 3cm otherwise you can’t see much of the red raw meat within the seared trimming. Now your Tuna Tataki is done! Hold the daikon firmly, facing the opening down, so that the chillies do not fall out. As I touched on previously, this is a superb dipping sauce for nabe and shabu-shabu. See the step-by-step photo as a guide. Kanpachi is of the species Seriola dumerili (Greater Amberjack) whereas Hamachi is of the species Seriola quinqueradiata (Japanese Amberjack). Since Ponzu is a sour dressing, I serve Japanese Meat and Potato Stew (Nikujaga) which has a slightly sweet flavour with a small quantity of meat. Squeeze the chillies to remove excess moisture and place them in the slit of the daikon vertically. Do not slice the seared tuna while warm as it tends to break and become flaky. While tempting, I can’t blame American sushi restaurants for my miseducation. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of Ponzu over the tuna pieces on each plate. I recommend that the length be no longer than 15cm/6” as it becomes difficult to handle. Repeat to season four long sides of the tuna block. The tuna slices are not square this time. Hi Elizabeth, thanks a lot! Soak the julienned daikon in ice water to crisp. Hamachi is actually the middle stage of development for the Japanese Amberjack, which is preceded by Inada and succeeded by Buri. thankfully they sell it in local grocery stores as well here. If you can only buy a chunk of sashimi tuna sliced perpendicular to the backbone (sold like a round triangular shape), see my post Sashimi (Sliced Raw Fish), which shows how to get blocks out of a big triangle piece. Place half of the tuna tataki slices around each perilla leaf. It’s been 6 weeks since I got back from Japan. The word ‘momiji’ (もみじ)means Japanese maple tree and ‘oroshi’ comes from the word ‘daikon oroshi‘, which means grated daikon. Yuuum! A typical Japanese meal consists of a main dish, a couple of side dishes, a soup and rice. But you can buy a thick sashimi block from Sydney Fish Market and cut it half lengthwise to make a block like those in my photo. In today’s recipe, I used a home-made Ponzu dressing that I posted in Japanese Dressings. It is important to have a cuboid block (or as close to it as possible) to sear the tuna evenly. Drain and squeeze the daikon to get rid of excess moisture and pile up half of the daikon on each serving plate, slightly off-centred. After making few and taking photos etc, I still thought it looked good and they were really yummy. Another one of my favorite uses for ponzu sauce is as a refreshing dipping sauce for sashimi. Yum. Place a perilla leaf on the side of each daikon mound so that the leaf lays diagonally. Japanese-style Kingfish Tartare (Kingfish Tataki), Katsu Curry (Japanese Curry with Chicken Cutlet), Side dish 1: Tuna Tataki (Seared Tuna) with Ponzu Dressing – today’s recipe, make-ahead Ponzu Dressing. Poke few holes in a piece of daikon and fill the holes with red chillies. It is almost like the Tuna Tataki dish at the world-famous chef Nobu’s restaurant.
