On a little speck of rock set in the middle of the ocean in the Lesser Antilles. Part of the French West Indies. Been coming for many years to practice my French language skills and French Island eating. Trying out some cooking this time. We have rented a house with a full kitchen. The grocery stores are great here. Like being in Paris with a Caribbean twist. The fish markets are small and selection not huge as they only have locally caught fish but everything is fresher than you can imagine. Caught that day.
Bought this piece of tuna. Almost 2 kilos. Cost €36.
Separated the belly piece
Used it to make a crudo with lime, olive oil, yellow tomato, spring onions, shallots, pomegranate.
Then took another slice for making some tartar.
Finally made the remainder into steak to make mi-cuit (seared, raw in the center) but forgot to take pictures before we ate them.
Just unbelievably good. There is no market near me at home where I can get belly much less a piece of tuna this fresh and good.
Next up, lobster. Had the market split and clean it. Made a butter mixture of garlic, anchovies and lime juice. Smeared all over the flesh.
Then on the grill for 15 minutes eat voilà.
