Yellowfin Tuna Tartare

Presented by Top Cut Steak House


  • 4 oz. yellowfin tuna, diced
  • 2 T Orange Ginger Vinaigrette (below)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 T chives, sliced
  • 1 T parsley, roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp. spicy mayo
  • 1/4 oz. baby greens, your preference
  • 5 wonton chips, fried until crisp
  • 1/4 tsp. toasted sesame seeds


  • 2 cups orange juice, reduced to 1/2 cup
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 oz. ginger, peeled, roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 cup olive oil


In a small stainless steel bowl, mix together the tuna, orange ginger vinaigrette, salt, chives, and parsley. Press mixture into a rectangular mold (if available), then turn out in the middle of a dinner plate. (Otherwise, form tuna into an elongated shape using a spoon or spatula.) At the top of the plate, spoon 3 nickel-size dots of spicy mayo and drag to create decorative swooshes. Arrange baby greens lengthwise on plate between the tuna and spicy mayo. Place wonton chips down the center of the tuna. Garnish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds.

To make Orange Ginger Vinaigrette (yields 3 cups): Place the reduced orange juice, soy sauce, ginger and ground pepper in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add the olive oil slowly until emulsified, then turn off the blender. Store in the fridge. Note: Use as a salad dressing or a marinade/finishing sauce for grilled fish, chicken, pork, and more.
