Spicy Tuna Tartare

Recipe by Connie Veneracion
In our spicy tuna tartare recipe, tempura scraps were tossed in for textural contrast. After all, a light crunch is highly irresistible.
Tip: It is easier to slice chilled (not frozen tuna) because it is firm and, hence, the less chances of the fish flesh falling apart.
