Korean-style Negitoro

Korean-style Negitoro

A spicy negitoro seasoned with gochujang and spices. It's great as a drinking appetizer with sake!

Story Behind this Recipe

I bought a lot of tuna offcuts (near the spine) at the fishmonger, so I wanted to come up with a recipe that was a bit different.
