Easy Tuna Tartare
1 pound tuna, 1/2-in dice
5 medium sized heirloom tomatoes
3-5 Thai chiles sliced finely
1 sprig of parsley fine cut
1 medium lemon (or lime) juiced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Make The Easy Tuna Tartare
1. Once you've diced your tuna, refrigerate it until needed.
2. Remove the tops off the heirloom tomatoes and then
scoop out the tomatoes' insides. Reserve the juices from
the tomatoes, inside a small mixing bowl while discarding
fleshy pulp (or save the fleshy pulp for another dish!)
3 Now, start creating the tartare sauce by combining the
juices from the tomatoes with the lemon juice and the soy
sauce and then mix. Next add the tartare sauce to the tuna
and then mix. Caution: only add enough tartare sauce to
oat the tuna.
4. Finally, add the tuna tartare mixture into tomato cavities
and garnish with parsley, Thai chiles and sea salt.
