You’d be surprised how easy and cheap it is to make tartars at home! Just get some sushi-grade fish and enjoy!
Ingredients (for 2 servings)
Small piece of sushi-grade tuna (about 0.2-0.3 lb.) -you can get it at Whole Foods or seafood shops
1 small cucumber, peeled (you will need about 2 tablespoons chopped cucumber)
Handful of chives
1 tablespoon capers
1 tablespoon Thai peanut sauce (or any of your favorite Asian-type sauce)
Fresh lemon juice (1/2 teaspoon)
2. Drizzle tuna with olive oil (to prevent it from turning dark) and chop it very finely. Add to the cucumber/capers mixture. Season with salt and pepper, add Thai peanut sauce and drizzle with lemon juice and mix well.
3. Transfer the mixture into a ramekin and make sure it fills it tight. Cover the ramekin with the serving dish and turn it upside down. Remove the ramekin, garnish the tartar with chives and capers and serve immediately.
