Tuna Tartare with a Kick

Ingredients:
– 8 oz. Fresh Sushi Grade Ahi Tuna, chopped into very small cubes
– 1 Avocado (ripe & soft), diced
– Handful of fresh Cilantro (approx. 1 – 2 Tbsp)
– 1 medium Shallot, diced
– Teriyaki Sauce (the thicker kind), 2-3 Tbsp
– Wasabi Paste, approx. 3 inches from a tube
– Canola or Peanut Oil, 1 Tbsp
– Black Sesame Seeds (or toasted white Sesame Seeds), 1 Tbsp
 
Make it:
Chop the Shallot into small pieces and fry in the Oil until crispy but not burnt. Set aside on paper-towel to drain the oil. Combine the following in a bowl:
-Avocado
-Tuna
-Cilantro
-Black Sesame Seeds (or toasted white sesame Seeds)
Gently fold the above ingredients together then add about 2-3 T of the thick Teriyaki Sauce and Wasabi Paste to taste (we like to use about 3’’ from a tube, which gives it a nice kick). Gently mix together.
Top with Fried Shallot pieces and enjoy!
