U.S. Atlantic troll-caught or longline- caught tuna is the best option for this gorgeous dish! Try to avoid other fisheries (like Pacific-caught).

Cynthia, this looks great! I might try it with albacore, if I can still find any. Any advice for grinding that much pepper? It'll take a long time with our little grinder.

Oh my! This looks fantastic. Do you think that anyone who is not from the Seattle area will get the joke about the fish guys throwing fish at Jane at the Market? That cracked me up.

Jane cracks me up! 'They were all throwing fish at me!' Lol. Oh btw, the fish thingy looks good too...

This looks delicious! However, black pepper does not agree with me. Is there an alternative that can be used for the crust?

The pomegranate syrup in this recipe is so easy and makes this dish SO DELICIOUS! Loved this dish - thank you for sharing!

thank you for sharing is it ok if we cook it more to get rid of the red stripe btw Jane shouldn't quit just cause of fish being thrown it is a fish market anyway just catch it and throw it back. good luck on your house hunt.

alternative to pepper: ground regular and back sesame seeds.

I'm from the UK and have no idea what the fish throwing thing is about but I love your videos! Recipe looks fabulous and would be great with other fish or meat.

Video link to Seattle's Pike Place Market, where they throw the fish. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbtsfyrEF_c

Yes read first comment from Tessa about what fisheries to buy from. She knows and so does Monterrey Bay Aquarium. Fun fun.

Great video, thank you Anne- Marie. I thought they were going to start throwing the octopus as well! Seattle looks like a great place.

This is very delicious. Thank you Cynthia. Here are a couple adjustments I made. I used salmon. I understand from my research that Ahi tuna contains one of the highest sources of Mercury to be found! I really like the 1 minute on each side and that worked well for the salmon too. I used coconut oil for the searing. I think that heating polyunsaturated oils such as sunflower or safflower is not a good health practice as they have unstable bonds and produce free radicals. Coconut oil, on the other hand, is fully saturated and is therefore the most stable oil you could use for cooking. I loved the Pomegranite/Balsamic Reduction.
