Skill Level: Easy


Ingredients

  • • 1 tsp. of fresh radish
  • • 1 shallot
  • • 2 egg yolks
  • • 1 lemon
  • • 1 tsp. of chili flakes
  • • 1 tsp. of wholegrain mustard
  • • 2 x 250g troll-caught BC albacore tuna portion

Instructions

Pickled Radish Mix

  1. Dice fresh/pickled radish into fine cubes; You can use any pickle you really enjoy such as gherkins or banana peppers.
  2. Peel and dice 1 shallot and mix together with the radish cubes.
  3. Separate the egg yolk from the egg white (careful, don’t break the yolk) from two raw eggs and place them in a small bowl.

BC Albacore Tuna

  1. Take 2 x 250g of thawed albacore tuna and dice into 1cm cubes.
  2. Add 1 tbsp. of chilli flakes, 1 tbsp. of whole-grain mustard, a dash of salt, the radish mixture and juice from 1 half lemon.
  3. Give the tuna a good mix by folding it over itself with a spoon. Be careful not to break the tuna up as it is a very fragile protein.

Assembly

Gently place the seasoned tuna into a ring mould, or simply arrange neatly in a puck shape. Next, create a small indent at the top of the tartare and place the unbroken egg yolk gently on top. Enjoy with salt and vinegar chips or a nice loaf of bread!
