TUNA TARTARE ON A BED OF GUACAMOLE

On October 24, 2013 by Tina Diep

Tuna TartareThis beautiful and healthy starter will impress your guests and it is super easy to prepare. You really can’t go wrong making it. It is of course important that you buy a quality piece of tuna that is meant to be eaten raw – ask the fish market for ‘sushi grade’ tuna, which will be fresh and will have been frozen previously to kill parasites.
