Is it safe to use frozen tuna steak to make tuna tartar? The recipe is Ina Garten's Tuna Tartare and uses lime juice. I cannot get fresh tuna

I would appreciate answer soon, as the event is tomorrow. Thank you.

Commercial grade freezing is usually considered a way to make raw fish safer, because it kills parasitic worms that could be living in the raw fish flesh.

The FDA seems says that it is ok, http://www.fda.gov/food...

Sorry, for double posting. Anyhoo, most of the sushi that we consume in the US has been previously frozen to kill most parasites. So I think you'll be fine.
