Tuna Tartare served over Endive appetizer
Inspired by loveandlemons.com
What is great about this recipe, is a little fresh tuna goes a long way as an appetizer. I used approx 1.5 lbs total for 40 people.
Season fresh tuna with salt and pepper,
Quick sear in hot sesame oil for 30 seconds, so the middle stays pink.
Cube the seared tuna and season it with rice vinegar, soy sauce (or coconut aminos), Dijon mustard, chopped scallions, and toasted sesame seeds.
Scoop a spoonful of the tuna mixture onto the bottom end of endive leaves, and it makes for a beautiful and delicious fish appetizer.
