"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
This is pretty easy and fairly light. If you can, I would get the ahi tuna at a grocery that sells good, fresh seafood. I just got some at Whole Foods. Usually a regular grocery store has an international aisle with the rice vinegar, wasabi paste, etc.
