  1. The fish markets I usually frequent have stopped carrying much of it because it's endangered. Where are you located?

    I like regular tuna for tar tar though as well as wild salmon when you can find it. Good luck!

      I agree that wild salmon makes excellent tar tar.
      Never tried regular tuna.
      What is it and where do you find this kind?

        My standard goto is tuna sashimi grade, cut up in pieces, toss in cuisinant.
        Add olive oil, capers, chili paste and a hint of sesame seed oil, pulse a
        few times. Scoop into bowl, sprinkler sesame seeds and drizzle a little
        soy. I like this on cucumber slices or wheat thins. You can also make hand
        rolls etc with it. As far as blue fin, my local sushi guy has a state
        issued permit. I was hoping to find a source somewhere on the coast of
        Carolina. No luck so far
