Ahi Tuna Tartar

I just can’t pass up ahi tuna when the fish monger has it, but you have probably figured that already. This is a simple tartar with some creamy avocado and some crispy micro greens on top, the perfect meal for a hot summer night.

1 TBSP sesame seed oil
1 TBSP soy sauce
Zest of 1 lime
1 TBSP toasted sesame seeds
Pinch of espelette pepper
Salt and pepper
Sriracha sauce to taste
1 avocado, thinly sliced
Micro greens

Combine all but avocado and micro greens, toss to combine.

Serve over 1/2 sliced avocado, top with micro greens and a squirt of sriracha.

Serves 2.

Dump sesame seeds in a shallow bowl large enough to fit your fish. Press ahi into the sesame seeds, flip and repeat on the other side.
