tuna tartare with mango, avocado and sesame

Keep your board, knife and working area very clean (as always) but pay extra attention when working with raw fish. be gentle and work slowly and chop into sizes that you like. I enjoy small pieces. keep all chopped ingredients the same size for a good look and balanced bites. keep refrigerated when not plating and remember tartare is not ceviche, so any acids will cook the fish, and it will not taste good if its not fresh so make sure your fish is caught that day ! ask your fish dude and tweek recipe if tuna is not available…

add 1 part mango & avocado to 3 parts tuna .. sprinke with sesame seeds, chopped green onion. drizzle with good light olive oil, teeny 3-4 drops of sesame oil, a few dashes of soy, chopped cilantro if you like it (which i do) but go sparingly. gently mix it all up, season with fresh pepper and salt to taste (taste first) and serve on a rice cracker or chip of your choice.
