Took this to a dinner party as an appetizer- it was a huge hit! I pressed the tartar into a bowl to create a mold flipped in onto a small dish and served on a platter with sesame wontons which they devoured. I also substituted 1tbls. of tamari for oil and added a tsp. of chopped onions. Sesame wontons are easy: cut wontons diagonally to make triangles.(Make at least 48pcs. people love them!) Arrange on a cookie sheet with parchment(or lightly oiled). Spray or brush lightly with olive oil and sprinkle sesame seeds. Bake at 350degrees for 5-6 minutes. Read More

I made this as written and it is very very bland which is not what I was looking for. I doctored it up w/ some soy sauce chopped sweet onions and nori furikake and it tasted much better. Read More

I've tried this twice and it's really a good recipe. The second time I used white sesame oil instead of the olive oil and also added a bit of thinly sliced green onions and just a bit of finely minced garlic. Great both ways! Read More

Right up our alley Joelle!! Fantastic recipe for a family like ours who have recently been eating a lot of raw tuna and lovin' every bite of it. I slightly toasted the sesame seeds and the french bread. Makes a great appetizer too. Thanks so much!! Read More

Great recipe for fresh tuna. I really liked the simplicity of the dish! SO easy. I would have liked an additional flavor to the tar tar however. I'm not sure what it might be but I will definitely experiment with this again. 06/20: I tried this out on my boyfriends best friend aka the human garbage disposal. He LOVED this with extra wasabi paste added to the top. He said that if I ever make this again to call him he'll devour it. Read More
