[Note: I got this from a Food Network page.
I've made a stripped-down local copy in case the original goes away.]

The Web site version of this recipe makes a huge amount of the tartare. What I list here is approximately what you get when you divide the recipe by five. At the bottom I list the full version, so you can check the math and know about my rounding errors.



  1. Cut the tuna into 1/4-inch dice and place it in a very large bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine the olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, wasabi, soy sauce, hot red pepper sauce, salt, and pepper. Pour over the tuna.
  3. Add the scallions and jalapeno, and mix well.
  4. Cut the avocados in half, remove the seed, and peel. Cut the avocados into 1/4-inch dice.
  5. Carefully mix the avocado into the tuna mixture.
  6. Add the toasted sesame seeds, if using, and season to taste.
  7. Allow the mixture to sit in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour for the flavors to blend.
  8. Serve on crackers.
