Asian Tuna Tartare

July 19, 2012

In keeping with last week’s theme and to stay true to the rather large amounts of Asian food I have been consuming recently, I thought it was only fair that I share an Asian-inspired recipe. Ironically I thought about this tuna tartare at a Mediterranean restaurant, but it was so yummy that I thought that we could season it in such a way that it would earn a home in the East.

This dish is a great appetizer or small bite that will impress everyone at the table because it allows you to showcase great finesse without slaving away for too long in the kitchen. I would recommend that you use a good sharp knife and pay attention to detail when dicing and slicing so that when you are plating the finished product looks Michelin-Star worthy.
