Story Behind this Recipe

This is the season for delicious daikon radish, so I wondered if I could make something delicious that wasn't the normal simmered dish. The sweetness of the daikon with the delicious tuna flavor, cooked in sesame oil, was the perfect combination. This is great as a dish served with rice, but it's also perfect to eat with alcohol.
