  1. where can i buy sushi grade tuna? Can I just use the frozen tuna steaks from the general supermarket for this recipe

  2. Good question... I buy my tuna at the fish market. I believe it's a process to make sure there are no micro-organisms since it is not fully cooked but I'm not sure about frozen tuna. I would use it right after it thaws if you are using frozen.
