Quick Guide: 5 Easy Steps to Making Your First Tuna Tartare

Here’s one lent-friendly dish you should not miss.

Tuna tartare, which is essentially small sizes of tuna flavored with spices, is one of the best things that ever happened to raw fish. With a little bit of spice, raw tuna is transformed into an elegant appetizer that gives bursting Asian flavors. Bait’s by Chef Joseph Margate is one of the restaurants in the country that offers this dish.

The idea of preparing tuna tartare at home may sound intimidating, but Chef Joseph shares five tips to keep in mind when you try your luck in making this dish on your own.

1. Find the best tuna you can find. I always like to go local. Go to Farmer’s Market in Cubao and just say “sushi-grade” or “pang-sushi.”

2. Tuna tartare always takes a good amount of salt. Do not be afraid to put salt and something else like soy or fish sauce.

3. Try to make lemon oil. Grate some lemon peels, put it in some extra virgin oil, and heat it up a bit.

4. Always have some sort of onion whether spring onions or finely diced shallots. Onion lends itself really well to raw fish.

5. Serve it with something crispy.
