Mitchell Fish Market Shanghai-Style Tuna
Mitchell’s Fish Market is a premier upscale-casual seafood restaurant concept featuring the absolute freshest seafood. The Mitchell (Columbus) Fish Market group of restaurants serves this popular dish from their extensive menu – and although this recipe calls for tuna, other firm fleshed fish could be substituted. A hint of ginger, tangy citrus sauce and served over a bed or rice and spinach! This will yield 2 servings.
