Tuna Tartare

When I went to Maui two years ago, I ate tuna tartare and poke the entire week I was there. I couldn’t get enough of the stuff! As you know from my last recipe, I’ve been on a slight health craze recently. Although I can’t go back to Maui (as much as I’d like to!), I decided that I could at least recreate the amazing tuna tartare I had while I was there.

To make Tuna Tartare, you’ll need:

1 Pound very fresh, high-quality Tuna

2 Medium Avocados

Toasted Sesame Oil


Rice Vinegar

Original Mirin

Reduced-Sodium Soy Sauce

Roasted Sesame Seeds



Ak-Mak Crackers

First, take your big ol’ hunk of tuna and cut it into small cubes. Place the diced tuna into a big mixing bowl.

Next, chop up the avocados into small cubes and add them into the bowl with the tuna.

Then add in all the ingredients: the sesame oil, sriracha, soy sauce, rice vinegar, mirin, salt, pepper, and sesame seeds. It’s tough to say exactly how much to put in, because it really depends on your taste. I would suggest starting with 1 teaspoon of each ingredient and then adding more as desired. It’s always better to start out with too little than too much!

Once you’ve added in all your ingredients, mix everything together.

Now the tuna tartare is ready to eat! I served it with Ak-Mak crackers, but the tuna tartare will be just as delicious with chips or any other type of crackers.

If I close my eyes while I’m eating this, I can almost pretend I’m back in Maui. Almost…
