Yellow Fin Tuna Salficao

Yellow Fin Tuna Salficao
Yellow fin tuna salficao (sashimi/fillet) is my best bet for people who needs to cook something quick and delicious. Simple and tasty, it doesn’t take too long to prepare. I used Ocean fresh yellow fin tuna, sold at major groceries here in the Philippines. You can select other fish fillet if you like other type of fish.
