A couple of weeks back, the Soshinsen team had the opportunity to experiment cooking with a series of Tuna cuts that are not as "mainstream". These cuts included the Cheek, Collar and the Eye Muscle. While they may sound squeamish, these cuts had such extraordinary flavours and we had such a fun time cooking them.
