Tuna tartare with marigolds and ginger

Tuna tartare with marigolds and ginger

Prep 15 mins


Serves 4 as a shared starter

Difficulty 2

Tuna is the hero here, which can be served as finger food or a fresh appetiser when picked up using the squares of daikon. You could also use squares of roasted nori. The kewpie mayonnaise adds a lovely richness to the dish, as does the avocado. This tartare can also be served as a light meal with steamed jasmine rice.

2 tbsp light soy sauce

2 tsp sesame oil

1 tsp rice vinegar

2 cm piece ginger, finely grated on a mandolin

2 tsp sesame seeds

400g sashimi quality tuna

Marigold petals, to serve

Daikon, shaved on a mandolin, to serve

Kewpie mayonnaise, to serve

Sheets of nori (optional), to serve

1. Combine soy, sesame, rice vinegar, ginger and sesame seeds in a bowl and season to taste, adjusting as necessary.

2. Just before serving, place tuna in a bowl. Add dressing and toss to combine. Dot some kewpie mayonnaise onto a plate and place the tuna on top. Scatter over marigolds and serve with daikon to the side, with nori squares and avocado if desired to make handrolls.
