It's that time of the year again' The Blue Fin Tuna are passing by our shores again - a little earlier than last year. I got a phone call late last night to say there was a boat landing early in the morning in Castletownshend with a large Tuna on board so of course I said yes! It is great to welcome them back and as we only have them for a few weeks each year and it is an honour to have Irish Blue Fin Tuna on our menu at Thornton's. I serve it with water mint and watercress.
A huge fish - there's at least a few hour's work in filleting it (see pictures below)
