Morimoto was back in town this past week and was intimidating as ever. On Friday night I was asking a co-worker to sneak me a piece of steak to eat. While I was asking, his eyes widened and he turned on his feet and went back to grilling. I turned around to see Morimoto in my station just standing there looking around and scoping it out; horrifying. On Saturday night, he made this amazing sushi cake type thing with ten pieces of every sushi filling you could imagine; if I can find a picture of it online I will share it with you.
As for this recipe, this is one of my favorite items off our menu at Morimoto. My photo doesn’t do it justice since I didn’t have all the ingredients on hang, but I wrote the recipe to fit how it is at work and found a photo online of the actual thing. If you are not able to find an anchovy aioli recipe, a garlic aioli would probably be equally as good. You can also substitute some minced regular cilantro for the micro. I would never have thought of using olive with sashimi tuna, but it is SO good. If you ever go to Morimoto, you HAVE to try the tuna pizza.
