Full of Nutrition! Blood-Simmered Tuna

You can store this in the refrigerator. It's a handy recipe to have when you get your hands on cheap tuna. It's high in nutrients and also goes great in a bento!


Tuna with blood
net 500 g
Sake and soy sauce
1/4 cup
3-4 tablespoons
Sliced ginger
1 clove
Ginger (to taste)
as needed


1. I had large pieces.
2. Cut Step 1 into large pieces, then arrange on a plate. Pour hot water over the top. This will remove the smell.
3. Put 50 ml of water in a pot and add the seasonings. Slice the ginger, add to the pot, and bring to a boil. Add the blood. If there doesn't seem to be enough boiling liquid, add some water or sake.
4. Finally, remove the scum over high heat. Turn the heat to low and cover with a lid. Simmer until most of the liquid evaporates, about 40 minutes. Once simmered, transfer to plates and top with julienned ginger.
