Tuna Tartare Appetizer Recipe


If you enjoy tuna sushi, you definitely want to try this dish. It is a wonderful appetizer or snack. It involves mango, cucumber, and a fresh flavor. Serves nicely in a martini glass. This recipe is for four servings.

tuna tartare apptizer recipe Ingredients:
16oz sushi grade tuna
8 Tbsp mango
4 Tbsp cucumber
3 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp fresh cilantro
1 Tbsp green onion
1 1/2 tsp sesame seed oil
1 tsp hot sesame seed oil

There's a lot of chopping in this recipe, be warned! First, chop up the tuna into tiny cubes. Then chop the mango and cucumber up into tiny cubes. Put these into a bowl. Mix in the lime juice. Now mince the cilantro and green onion and add that in. Pour in the sesame seed oils. Mix it all around. If you need a little salt, now's the time to add it in.

This looks really pretty when served in a martini glass. It's a great way to start any meal. The tuna is healthy for you, with good omega oils. The other items add bursts of flavor!

No cooking needed at all. You can make this pretty much anywhere.

This makes four servings.

We've made this several times now and I adore it. The only real issue is all the chopping. This isn't a quick-fix dish, you have to be ready to chop away for a little while.

Also, it's worth mentioning that sushi grade tuna isn't necessarily easy to find, depending on what part of the country you're in. So you'll want to scope that out and see where you can get your hands on some.

Also, you can't normally buy a "part of a melon". So think up ways to use the leftover melon, cucumber, and other items you'll end up with when you're done making this dish.

Highly recommended! Be sure to swing by our forums to let us know what you think of the tuna tartare, and how you like to vary it to meet your own taste bud needs. We'd love to hear from you, and share ideas!
