Method for Sashimi Tuna & Kumomoto Oysters

• Scrub the oysters free of dirt and debris using a small brush.
• Using an oyster knife, remove the top shell of the oyster; detach the bottom of the oyster leaving it in the half shell.
• Check the oyster for any shell or grit. If there is excess grit, rinse with saltwater. Otherwise, leave the oyster in the shell.
• Cut the tuna in 20 equal size blocks, about the same size as the oysters.
• Place the tuna on top of the oysters.
• Place 1 teaspoon of the glaze on top of each oyster.
• Finish with a small dot of the wasabi.
• On 4 serving platters, place the crushed ice and top with leaves of cilantro (this will be used to keep the oysters cold and from sliding).
• Place all of the oysters on top of the cilantro and crushed ice and serve immediately.
