Remarks

An interesting combination of flavours is to serve these tuna cubes with something fresh and tangy, such as the carrot salad shown in the photos.

This recipe was devised for tuna, but you could use another fish - salmon, for example - if you prefer.

You will notice that there is no added salt in this recipe. This is because the soy sauce in the marinade, and the curry powder are already salty enough.
