15 Minute Tuna Tartare: Ingredients

  • Fresh tuna
  • Green onions (spring onions)
  • Limes
  • Red chillies
  • Coriander
  • Soy sauce
  • Tortilla wraps

Slice the tuna into long slices.

Then, cube the tuna into small pieces. Place it into a bowl as you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Remove the seeds from the chillies and dice them up into the smallest size pieces you can.

Chop up the coriander and add it to the tuna along, with the chillies.

Add the lime juice. This will act as a flavouring and help “cook” the raw tuna with its acidity!

Slice up the green onions.

Add the green onions, along with salt and pepper, to the bowl.

Finish the mix with a spoonful of soy sauce. Be careful with the amount and do it to taste, as it can overpower the whole dish easily.

Combine everything with a spoon and adjust the seasoning with more lime, chillies, salt or pepper as desired to match your taste.

Cut the tortillas into little triangles and fry them off for 20 seconds in a griddle pan. You could eat the tartare without anything else, but they add a nice contrast in texture.
