Tuna Tartare

By Chef H. Delgado

December 9, 2020

I made this tartare at the end of the summer with a piece of tuna that my friend Eugenio gave me. The idea of the dish was to respect the tuna as much as possible, so I decided to put a mild dressing and thus enjoy the unique flavor of tuna.

I have thought that this delicacy of the sea would be a perfect way to start any meal. And therefore it is the first idea to cook this Christmas.

Ingredients ( Serves 4)

  1. Tuna: 200 g.
  2. Red onion 1/2 u.
  3. Chive.
  4. Salt.
  5. Black Pepper.
  6. Virgin olive oil 4 tbsp.
  7. Juice of one lime.
  8. Zest of a lime.


  1. Cut the tuna into small cubes. Put them in a bowl and mix them with the rest of the ingredients.
  1. Season to taste and serve with chives on top and half a lime on one side.

This starter can also be served on toast; you will see what a success.
