Cooking with Us: E7: Tuna Tataki

I've really been fiending for Jai-Yen's (in Chicago) style Tuna Tataki for quite a while now.

While "tataki" can mean anything from seared, sliced beef or tuna to just those things cut up small, we are gonna stick with calling this tuna tataki, b/c how could Jai-Yen ever be wrong when their food tastes so right?

For this dish you absolutely need sushi-grade tuna (which you will probably have to order from the seafood counter at your local grocery store.)

Needless to say, I was super pumped when my tuna came in this past Saturday!

As usual I suggest viewing this full-screen and in high res. 
Also, please don't judge my attempts at Japanese ;)

The excitement begins!
