  1. Good Morning Marina, I love fresh tuna and this is a recipe which I know I am going to enjoy making.
    George used to go tuna fishing when we lived in Cyprus. The tuna arrived in June and stayed for just a short period of time, if I remember correctly, until about the middle of July. You would see keen fishermen leaving Larnaca harbour hoping to catch a fish or two. When George and his friends fished they used a fishing rod, so they would bring back three maybe four fish, which we would share.
    Aahh wonderful memories.
    Have a lovely weekend Marina.
    Best Wishes
    Daphne

    1. Gracias Pedro, esto está degenerando, si a mi lo que me gustaba era la decoración, pero en fin me está surgiendo por ahí un club de fans de la cocina facil y saludable y allá vamos. Espero que lo hayas pasado bien por ahí con tu familia.

    1. Thank you, I agree with you, the tuna is huge but I have seen a documentary, about how specialist cut and separe every piece of it and explains the different recipes for every part of the fish. They also told that the most of the captures are sold to Japan for Sushi

    1. The villages in that coast are charming, my grandma was born in Tahivilla a small village very close Zahara. But the most beatiful village in this area is Vejer, its origins are arab when Andalousia was under the power of arabs before the reconquer by the King Alfonso X the Wise.
