Albacore Sashimi With Jalapeño & Ponzu
- 8 oz. sashimi grade Albacore tuna
- 1 jalapeño sliced on a mandolin

- Layer with the thinly sliced jalapeño.
- Serve with the ponzu sauce for dipping, or drizzle on top of the sashimi.
How thinly do I slice the fish?
First, make sure you have a VERY sharp knife. I like my sashimi cut 1/4 inch thick. However, I have enjoyed both thinner & thicker variants at restaurants. Then, cut a few sample slices and see what you prefer. But make sure you don't eat it all yourself!
Pour or dip the ponzu?
Hubby is a dipper, and I'm a pourer. Layer your fish with the jalapeño. Then, choose your own adventure.
What's your favorite sushi? Mine? Albacore sashimi.
I enjoyed this dish so much at a restaurant that I wanted to recreate the favorite at a fraction of the cost. Most of us can't always afford to eat in high-end eateries all the time, so it feels great being able to treat myself to my favorites without breaking the bank.
However, be prepared! Sashimi grade fish is expensive.
What kind of cutting board do you use?
I get a million questions about my cutting board Wooden cutting boards are porous. So if you put something like raw fish on them, then they will likely have an unpleasant smell and bacteria. Therefore, I use closed-cell cutting boards (non-porous) and have never gone back. Click here to shop my favorite cutting board on Amazon.

Check out this tuna tartare salad and its irresistible ginger dressing. It's a favorite, and such a special treat! Also, this tuna tartare tastes great on fried wontons instead of on a bed of lettuce.
