This amazing, and simple-to-make, Spicy Tuna Tartare recipe is all his. Created on a whim while on vacation, it’s a little bite that packs a big punch! Luscious tuna is joined with fresh green scallion, sriracha, mayonnaise, and gochujang (a Korean chili sauce) to make a delicious & quick appetizer. Serve with thinly sliced avocado on fried wonton chips or your favorite cracker, and pair with your favorite cocktail. —Jessie @Straight to the Hips, Baby

Directions
  1. Thinly slice 3 scallions and put aside.
  2. Using a sharp knife, trim the tuna into a clean rectangle. Next, slice 1/2-inch thick 'fillets' from the larger piece of fish. Taking those 'fillets', slice into 1/2-inch wide strips, and then dice up to make 'cubes'. Add to a small bowl and reserve.
  3. Add the sriracha, mayonnaise, & gochujang to the tuna, along with the sliced scallion. Give a quick stir and let sit for 1 minute to meld the flavors.
  4. Serve on crackers with thin slices of avocado.
