Ali Hussainy is no stranger to catching fish. The question stands - but can he cook?!
Serving raw fish is the fastest way to make great friends and great memories, and Ali shows a recipe he "stole" from his favorite fishing resort in Mexico. The amazing thing about eating raw fish is theres not a lot of wrong ways to prepare it. Feel free to use as much or as little of his suggestions and use the best quality ingredients you can to respect the fish. Also remember that this doesn't have to be raw tuna, but can be raw albacore(also a tuna), raw salmon, raw yellowtail, or really any raw fish you want to eat.
Using your fish of choice, find the grain side and start to slice into thin slices or desired thickness. With a tougher meat, we suggest slicing into thinner slices while fattier or more tender fish deserve a thicker cut. Changing thickness can help you eat the fish, but it also can change the flavor so be creative and slice to the thickness you like the most.
Once the raw fish is sliced and laid out, prep the rest of your ingredients. In this recipe Ali uses Jalapenos, onions, olive oil, basalmic vinegar, soy sauce, hot sauce, cilantro, lime and granulated garlic. Be creative! But also think about what pairs best with the type of fish you have. The art of making sushi takes these pairings to a whole new level, but in your home, theres no need to do something you dont like, so make it your own and leave none on the plate! Enjoy.
