Leading adults-only boutique resort, Beyond Karon in Phuket, is taking fresh line-caught tuna and creating a new range of dishes as it highlights one of the world’s most renowned fish from September 1 to November 15.
Diners at the resort will be able to savour four unique ways of enjoying local Phuket tuna fish, caught in the Andaman Sea waters off the beachfront resort, courtesy of the skills of locally trained Beyond Resort Karon Executive Chef Sanit Thaninporn.
“Tuna is a very versatile fish to work with. It is always freshly caught that day and I personally inspect the catch to make sure that we select the finest fish for our guests,” said Chef Sanit.
“The concept is to let the flavor of the fish come to the fore, celebrating it as a fine, fresh fish from our local waters. In this sense the dishes use simple and uncomplicated ingredients to keep the focus on the fish and its health benefits.”
The four dishes are Emperor Tuna in Herb Tomato Sauce (THB350++); Seared Tuna with Soya Sauce and Salt Bean Crumbs (THB250++); Marinated Tuna with Vinegar and Wasabi Cream; and Marinated Tuna with Fish Salt and Garlic Chili Sauce (THB180++ each).
“We are delighted to be adding tuna to our list of local culinary experiences this year,” said Beyond Resort Karon General Manager Amnat Jittavikul. “It is obviously very well known but we are pleased to be bringing it to diners in its freshest, healthiest form.
“Add this to a romantic dining environment, paired with a glass or two from our collection of fine wines, and it creates a wonderful experience for gourmands and regular diners alike.”
