Mouthwatering seared Otoro tuna recipe, super fatty tuna belly seared with blow torch, enjoy with yuzu extract and garnish with green onion.


  • Sashimi-grade super Fatty Tuna Belly (Otoro)
  • Green onion/scallion (finely chopped)
  • Yuzu


  1. With a very sharp knife, slice sashimi into 3/8 inch slices. You don’t want it too thin or else the torch will cook through the entire slice.

  2. Cover a plate with aluminum foil and place the sashimi slices on top. Start blowing torch until top is lightly brown. The goal is for lightly searing outside but still raw on the inside.
