  • Serves 4 (as an appetizer)
What You'll Need
  • 1/2 pound sushi grade tuna, cut into small pieces
  • 4 tablespoons minced green onion (white part; use green part for garnish)
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice (fresh is preferable but bottle works also)
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • Sesame seeds for garnish
  1. In a medium bowl combine the tuna, onion, soy sauce, sesame oil and lime juice. Cover and let marinade in the refrigerator for at least one 1 hour. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onion. This dish is great by itself but may be served on rice crackers as an appetizer.

can I assume that the recipe calls for regular sesame oil and not toasted sesame oil? the latter is such a strong flavor that it's hard to imagine using that much; but at the same time, regular sesame oil is not often found in western markets, and is a very neutral oil. Which one is called for - thanks.

It’s regular sesame oil not toasted. But I’ve used toasted oil in a pinch and it was still tasty!
