Tuna Tartare to Ring the New Year

Tuna Tartare

It’s the end of the year again and I’m back in NYC, avoiding the crowds to have an intimate and quiet dinner whilst watching “You’ve Got Mail”. After indulging a bit much for the holiday travels, I wanted to keep a simple and light meal.

For this tuna tartare, I didn’t use all the ingredients it normally asks for. Instead to keep this sauce simple, I followed the recipe of making a balsamic vinaigrette but without the balsamic vinegar.

Ingredients for 2 serving

  • 1/2lb tuna, diced
  • 1 scallion, minced
  • 1 large clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp olive oil, I used truffle oil for the occasion
  • 4 pieces of capers, minced
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • lemon, as needed
  • black pepper, for taste
  • 1 avocado, cubed
  • 2 2×4 Kavli crackers

1. After dicing tuna, set aside in the refrigerator while preparing sauce.

2. Mix oil, mustard, capers, mustard, salt, black pepper, and lemon. I emulsified it to smooth it out.

3. Add scallion and mix well before mixing into the tuna. Returned mixed tartare into the refrigerator.

4. Add a little salt and lemon into the avocado and mix well.

I served the meal with sparkling wine and strawberry. To end the meal, I served ice cream topped with San Pellegrino Aranciata Rossa.
