Yellowfin Tuna???????¡has a medium-mild flavor with very firm texture. Compared to other Tunas it is less flavorful than Bigeye but more flavorful than???????¡Albacore. The flesh is deep red while raw, is often used for sashimi, and is best not cooked well-done as it looses flavor and becomes???????¡like???????¡cardboard.
Squid ink, which is also available from the Cuddlefish is added to the water and dough as pasta is made, creating very black colored pasta. This ink provides a salty and somewhat sweet flavor as an ingredient and coloring to the pasta. Ribbons of pasta, such as Squid Ink Tagliatelle, are produced that are single pieces of black pasta. Another version of Squid Ink pasta is dual colored pasta that is produced by combining a ball of black colored pasta with a ball of natural or white colored pasta. The dough is rolled flat so the black is on one side and the white on the other and then as it is placed into the pasta maker it comes out with the dual coloring, one for each side.
