Anyone seen ‘The Notebook’? If you couldn’t relate to the pain of dementia before seeing this movie, it definitely gives you a different perspective after. Researchers have found that eating fish may boost blood flow to the brain which could stave off dementia later in life. Reason enough to eat fish and shove it in my boyfriend too if you ask me! If you don’t like fish steamed, or raw like sashimi or just like to mix it up a little – this recipe is for you! When buying fish to use in raw recipes like sashimi/sushi/carpaccio it’s incredibly important you make sure the fish is really fresh and of sushi grade! Although the recipe is similar to my previous ones (why change something that works so well, right?) I have added a new twist but any of the ingredients can be swapped for whatever veggies or fruit you like . I just happen to be crazy for this combination :D
For the tuna tartar you’ll need:
- Red chili
- 1/2 Lemon
- 1/2 Lime
For the Nobu salsa you need:
- 10g jalapeño chilli
- 100g red or white onion
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 4 tablespoons lemon juice
- salt to taste
You’ll also need taco shells or tortillas (gluten free preferably) and/or rice wraps.
The actual cooking part of this is easy – finely chop all the ingredients for the tartar and mix in a bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, mix all the ingredients for the salsa.
Twist 1: Pile it on tortilla chips or tacos with a bit of salsa on top
Twist 2: Pop a rice wrap in hot water and shake off the excess water once soft. Wrap it around the tartar mixture with salsa on top. Yum!
Or just eat it straight off the bowl as it is :D Oh, and if you have dry onion it’s absolutely mind blowing as a topping!!
Hope you enjoy! xx
