Tuna Tartare {Served as Hors d’Oeuvres}

Tuna Tartare Ingredients

Use fresh, high-quality ingredients.


Tuna Tartare - Cubed Tuna

Dice your tuna into fine cubes. It is much easier to slice tuna when it is very cold, almost frozen. I buy my sushi grade tuna from Whole Foods. Here is the company who supplies it (here and here).


Tuna Tartare - Ginger

Squeeze a small amount of ginger in a garlic press into a small bowl before adding it to your tuna.
Too much and you will kill its delicate flavor.

I was in a rush to get my hors d’oeuvres photographed before the sun disappeared, so I forgot to photograph the mashed avocado and cream and the tuna with the soy and ginger, but I’m sure you get the gist. I mashed the avocado and sour cream with my hand blender (this one).

Serve as hors d’oeuvres or in larger portions and as appetizers.

TUNA TARTARE {Served as Hors d'Oeuvre}

1/2 lb quality sustainably sourced tuna. I get mine frozen fresh from Whole Foods (here).
1/2 ripe avocado
1 tsp of soy sauce
1 square inch of fresh ginger
1 tbsp of sour cream
1 tsp of finely chopped chives

Squeeze the juice out of the ginger with a garlic press.
Get the rest of your ingredients ready.
Mash the avocado and sour cream together until you have a very smooth paste.
Chop your chives and set aside.
Dice your tuna into tiny cubes.
Add 1/2 tsp of ginger to the tuna.
Add 1 tsp of soy sauce to the tuna.
Taste and adjust accordingly but remember, you want only a hint of ginger. Don’t overpower the delicate tuna.
In the dish of your choice (plate, tasting spoon, etc.) place a small amount of avocado puree and add some diced tuna on top.
Sprinkle with chives and serve chilled.

You can serve in single bite hors d’oeuvre portions or in larger appetizer-sized servings.
Use high-quality ingredients.
Remember, eating raw fish carries risks.
