Tuna and Avocado Tartare on Sesame Wonton Crisps

8/8/11


Tartare sounds so fancy, doesn't it? You don't MAKE tartare, you eat it at fancy restaurants while drinking crisp white wine. Well, NOT ANYMORE (insert commercial voice). It's extremely simple to make, all you need is some sushi-grade tuna (most markets sell that, just ask) and a sharp knife to cut it with. And it's delicious and you can impress your friends and eat it at home without drinking stupid crisp white wine.

I loosely followed this recipe, but I was missing a few ingredients like wasabi paste, rice vinegar, green onions and chives. Oh, and California Caviar (come on now). Really wish I would have had wasabi, it was missing that heat. Also the rice vinegar, it was missing that tang. The onions and chives would have been nice too. Alright FINE, and the California Caviar, whatever that is, WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! (That's me crying.) (I like to explain myself in parentheticals).

I've never had a tartar. there. I said it. This looks pretty darn good - I love avocados and all the Asian flavors in it. Heck I'd even drink the stupid crisp white wine :)
