Tuna Tartare is similar to Ceviche, where raw fish is prepared by marinating it in a mixture of herbs and seasonings. However, the two differ; Tuna Tartare is the liquids they are marinated in because Ceviche uses mainly citrus juice. Tuna Tartare uses a combination of liquid sauces and some citrus. This Tuna Tartare recipe is a mixture of Mexican and Asian flavors with avocado, lime juice, soy sauce, and sesame oil. If you’re a fan of Tuna Tartare, this is an accessible homemade version that will add a bit of sophistication to your next dinner date or party. Canapés anyone?
