Ahi Tuna Tartare - A Perfect Superbowl Snack!
Looking for the perfect appetizer to bring to your friend's Superbowl party on Sunday?! This Ahi Tuna Tartare is one of my favorites!!
My fabulous guest-star, Lauren, has been my partner-in-crime since 3rd grade when I formally asked her to "be my best friend" on our first day of summer camp. Over the years, our shared love of food and cooking has led us to many disastrous messes in the kitchen (just picture pumpkin-bread batter spilled all over the kitchen counters and floor) . . . but let me promise you - this Ahi is a serious culinary success! Lauren once made this appetizer for a potluck at my apartment, and I have been dying to make it ever since!
The fresh ahi, mixed with the soy sauce, lime, and a nutty sesame taste is absolutely delicious and light. Add some avocado to that, and you've got all your bases covered! I mean, wait, wrong sport?
This appetizer can be served a variety of ways - check out our cucumber cups. . . I might even venture to call them "superbowls" of cucumber!! Sorry, had to do it!
1 pound sashimi grade Ahi Tuna - to save time and effort,
have it pre-chopped for you at the seafood counter!
2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 medium avocado - cubed
1/2 cup scallions - chopped
1 lime - juice
Salt & Pepper to taste
This appetizer pairs perfectly with your favorite chips, endive leaves, & cucumber cups. If you don't have a melon-baller, use a spoon to remove the middle of the cucumber, or just cut it into slices and top it with the ahi tartare (like a cracker!).

Hi Samantha! The sashimi grade tuna at whole foods is perfect! If you're looking for sashimi grade salmon and can't find it, I'd recommend a gourmet fish market or any specialty health food market!

That looks so good. I think I'll try this but by halving and then "canoeing" the cucumber-and cutting a flat base to serve. Thanks so much!

Hi! Do you usually get this at Whole Foods at the seafood counter? They won't care to pre-chop it for you? I can't wait to try this recipe! Loving your blog!

Hi! They're always so nice at the Whole Foods counter and don't usually give me a hard time when I ask them to pre-chop it! If they aren't able to do it, just chop it at home with a nice sharp knife :)
