Getting fancy today with this tuna tartare ✨ 🤗 Little more delicate than my normal recipes but secretly so simple to do! If you want to impress somebody definitely give this recipe a go!!
📍 #homemaderecipe inspired by the tuna tartare from @lasrecetasdemj .
📝 Ingredients (serves 2):
- Red tuna steaks, we buy 1 or 2 depending on how wide the tuna is and ask the fishmonger to cut them so the thickness is perfect for later dicing
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- 1 lime, zested (save a little to decorate)
- Extra virgin olive oil
- 1 large avocado (1 and a half if yours is not too big)
- 1/2 medium red onion, chopped into very tiny pieces - 1 lime, juiced (juice of the lime you have zested)
- a few drops of tabasco (optional)
1. In a bowl combine the dijon mustard, lime zest, olive oil and salt.
2. Dice the tuna and add it to the bowl.
3. Mix well, cover with clingfilm and place it in the fridge for about 30min.
4. While the tuna marinates prepare the avocado mash.
5. Mash the avocado with a fork.
6. Add the onion (it cannot rule over the avocado or tuna), lime juice, tabasco and salt.
7. To serve I use a round pastry cutter (I don’t have a ring tin so... :p) and place half of the avocado mash at the bottom, then add a layer of tuna and sprinkle some lime zest.
