marlin fish steak fillet black garlic lemongrass sauce dentist chef recipe

A marlin or sailfish, family Istiophoridae, is a fish with an elongated body, a spear-like snout or bill, and a long rigid dorsal fin, which extends forward to form a crest. Its common name is thought to derive from its resemblance to a sailor’s marlinspike. The Atlantic blue marlin (Makaira nigricans) is a species of marlin endemic to the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic blue marlin (hereafter, marlin) feeds on a wide variety of organisms near the surface. It uses its bill to stun, injure, or kill while knifing through a school of prey, then returns to eat. Marlin is a popular game fish. The relatively high fat content of its meat makes it commercially valuable in certain markets.

Cajun cuisine (French): Cuisine Acadienne [kɥizin akadjɛn]) is the style of cooking named for the French-speaking Acadian or “Cajun” immigrants deported by the British from Acadia in Canada to the Acadiana region of Louisiana, USA.

Cajun style seasoning grilled tuna fillet is sounds delish and spicy that blown your mind away once you’ve try it. There are many Cajun seasoning blends on the market today, all with their own distinct characteristics. Most are boldly flavored and sassy and representative of cajun cooking. In general, a Cajun seasoning blend might include garlic, onion, chiles,thyme, black pepper, mustard and celery. However, you can count on the fact that each Cajun seasoning blend on the market will be a little different from another. My favourite brand for cajun seasoning is Mc Cormic. Since it commonly in western cuisine, when you find it in asian groceriesor supermarket the price tag is gonna be bumped up.
