HISTORY: Tataki, ("pounded" or "hit into pieces") also called 'tosa-mi', refers to two methods of preparing fish or meat in Japanese cuisine. The meat or fish is seared very briefly over a hot flame or in a pan and can be briefly marinated in vinegar, sliced thinly and seasoned with ginger. (which is ground or pounded into a paste, hence the name) Food so prepared can also be served with soy sauce and garnishes like a sashimi. The method originated in Tosa Provence. Lore has it that it was developed by Sakamoto Ryōma, a 19th-century rebel samurai, who picked up the European technique of grilling meat from the foreigners resident in Nagasaki.
