Spicy Tuna

This Recipe is very dear and near to my heart!

It is my cousin Tina's delicious creation! Tina taught me to make this years ago, and ever since I cant stop making it!! I know many people find japanese food intimidating, but I promise you after you see how simple this spicy tuna recipe is, you will be making it again and again :)
