That Time We Bought a Tuna (Via Kickstarter)

Well, a large piece of one.

Tuna is, by far, Bill’s favorite kind of fish. It’s also generally a problematic fish to eat. For example, it can be incorrectly identified, sometimes intentionally. Sometimes it’s a species that is woefully endangered. While we usually consult the Seafood Watch app for various fish dishes, tuna is just such a pain, we’ve about given up.

So, when a few folks I trust started tweeting about this kickstarter, I did what anyone would do: I forwarded it to the Ethical Tuna Lover in the house. And told him to feel free to back it.

And so, he did. While I didn’t initially expect him to go gangbusters, when that’s what he wanted, I was 100% on board with the plan. (Maybe more like 200%, as I am also a fan of tuna, just not quite as big a fan as he is.)

Yesterday, we got our tuna. It wasn’t as much as we feared/hoped, and we have done a great job of clearing out the freezer for it. I’ve already bought us sushi rice, though I don’t yet have sushi vinegar.

So, mostly, they sent us packs for sushi/sashimi. There’s also a few tuna steaks in there, which is fantastic. What’s more, we have some pre-prepped food. Unfortunately, it’s not labeled, so I can’t tell what it is. Ceviche? Poke? I don’t think it’s burgers….

I got to play, a bit, with dry ice!

I will keep you posted, hopefully better than I did with the hog, about our tuna adventures in the tag that time we bought a tuna.
