Crisp, clean, fresh, bright flavors are what I taste with this tuna dish. The combination of tuna and avocado creates a rich, buttery texture. Add the nuttiness of sesame oil, savory notes with soy, a bit of bite with onion and jalapeno and finish with a fresh squeeze of lime, and you have a terrific appetizer or main course. Randy suggests pairing with a Sauvignon Blanc.
Tuna Tartare with Avocado and Cilantro
Serves 4-6
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
Zest of 1 lime
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon sesame oil
3/4 OR 1 pound Ahi Tuna, cut into 1/4 ” cubes
1 large avocado, cubed
4 green onions, sliced
1 jalapeno, seeded, diced
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted
Salt and pepper, to taste
Whisk first 5 ingredients in medium bowl to blend. Add tuna, onion and jalapeno. Stir to coat. Spoon tartare in to a bowl, sprinkle with sesame seeds. Just before serving, fold in avocado and garnish with  cilantro. Serve in glasses (serves 4). OR serve on a platter with homemade tortilla chips (serves 6).
