  6. Once they are golden, strain and allow to drain on the paper towel. Season with a pinch of salt.

To serve

  1. Thinly slice the daikon so that it will fold without breaking.

  3. Place the daikon onto a board and place the tuna in the middle.

  • The yuzu gel will keep in the refrigerator for weeks and makes an interesting addition to desserts or other raw fish dishes.
