Tuna Tartare – Don’t be afraid to prepare raw fish. Go to a store that carries sushi-grade tuna and work quickly when you are cutting the fish. This recipe is easy and tasty. The Asian flavors of ginger, soy, jalapeno and lime juice accentuate the clean, silky taste of the tuna, and topping with sesame seeds gives a nice crunch and a little texture.
Tuna tartare may look fancy, but it’s one of the easiest dishes you can make at home! Use sushi-grade fresh ahi tuna, then marinate with a mix of soy sauce, ginger, lime juice, and sesame oil. Add white onion for crunch, jalapeño for heat, and plenty of avocados! You will make this light, flavorful tartare again and again!
