Exotic Tuna Tartare Recipe



1 lb. fresh tuna, diced in 1/8-inch cube (chilled until ready to serve)

3 Tbsp 100% pure sesame oil

 3 Tbsp corn oil

Tbsp mniced ginger

1 Tbsp premium soy sauce

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp mirin

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp wasabi powder

1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds

1 Tbsp jalapeño, seeded and diced

1 avocado, diced

 chopped cilantro for garnish

lightly salted Kettle chips

  1. In a small container, combine corn oil and ginger. Allow to infuse for at least 2 hours. In a separate bowl, mix thoroughly the sesame oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, sugar, mirin, jalapeño, sesame seeds and wasabi powder. When ready to serve, strain infused ginger oil into the sauce mixture. Combine thoroughly with diced tuna.
  2. You have several serving options. For a cocktail party, you can either place a small scoop of tuna tartare on a spoon topped with diced avocado and mango. Or for our “fish & chips” (an unusual yet complimentary pairing), place a scoop of tuna tartare on a potato chip and top with diced avocado and mango. To serve as a side dish, place a 3-inch ring form on a plate. Add a layer of diced mango, then tuna tartare and avocado. Top with one large potato chip and sprinkle with cilantro. This recipe serves 4-6 people (depending on which presentation you choose).
