Tuna Tartar

Tuna Tartar

Serves 2-4 as appetizer

Difficulty - easy
A tablespoon of sesame seeds, toasted and cooled.
8 oz or 220 grams of Sashimi grade tuna diced into small pieces kept on a cold plate
About 1/2 teaspoon sesame seed oil
About 1/2 teaspoon light soy sauce
About 1/4 teaspoon of Shichimi Togarashi (a Japanese 7 spice mixture available in most Japanese food stores)

Mix all ingredients just before serving, adjust seasoning and if you feel fancy, chop a bit of chives and sprinkle on top.

Serve with thinly sliced and toasted sweet French baguette, I recommend Acme if you are in the SF Bay Area, or Challah.
