Tuna Tartare:

  • ½ pound sashimi-grade ahi tuna, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil

  • 1 tablespoon nori fumi furikake (seaweed and sesame rice seasoning)

  • ¼ teaspoon wasabi powder

Wasabi Aioli:

  • 2 teaspoons water

  • ½ teaspoon wasabi powder

  • cup mayonnaise

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice


  • 1 (12 ounce) bag tortilla chips

  • 1 ripe avocado, diced

  • ¼ cup finely diced red onion


  1. Combine tuna, peanut oil, furikake, and wasabi powder in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

  2. Mix water and 1/2 teaspoon wasabi powder together in a medium bowl. Stir in mayonnaise, chives, and lime juice. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.

  3. Top tortilla chips with tuna tartare, avocado, and red onion. Drizzle wasabi aioli lightly over the top.

Cook's Note:

I use scoop-shaped tortilla chips. Don't use baked chips because they will get soggy.

Editor's Note:

Consuming raw seafood may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have certain medical conditions.
