No … the tuna martini is a gimmick and does not work for us. Chris Thistlethwaite from the Royal Scam serves up tuna marinated in sesame oil, soy sauce and chili sauce topped with a creamy mixture of wasabi and sour cream.
Some good ingredients, but this presentation is excessive. Now maybe it would work if the recipe included some gin or vermouth. We’ll leave that for more adventurous cooks to try!
We must forgive the chef for the tuna martini because Royal Scam is a bar in Mobile, Alabama. And Royal Scam’s other offerings are mouth-watering. We’re there the next time we’re in Alabama.
Royal Scam, Royal Escape … we have a theme here, and there’s no doubt that tuna’s a royal dish!
