I’m picky about fish.. don’t really like them that much. But, I do really like ono (wahoo), Hapu`upu`u (seabass)- steam them Chinese style; hamachi (yellowtail tuna) and ahi (bigeye tuna)- make sashimi with them. They are very very yummy- melt in your mouth kind of yumminess when they are fresh. I’ve came to like fresh raw fish due to years living in Hawaii.
This past week, I went a buy me some sushi/ sashimi grade ahi at the local grocery store that sells them fresh. I cut them into small pieces, mixed them with avocado, and eat them with some warm bread. Yumm! Just thinking about it my mouth is salivating! 😉
The truth is, I got this recipe from watching a waiter made a dish of Beef Tartare on our table at Cafe Claude in San Francisco. If you live in San Francisco and never tried their Beef Tartare, you definitely should! It is the best!! I’ve never had the courage to make the Beef Tartare myself instead, I’ve always used Ahi.
If you want to try making them.. here is what I got.. but, remember, I eyeballed all the ingredients myself. So, experiment with them!
1/2 lb of sushi/ sashimi grade Ahi- cut into very small pieces
1 medium size avocado- cut into very small pieces
2 tsp any kind of mustard- I use Grey Poupon Mild & Creamy with White Wine
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 or 2 dashes of tobassco
1 -1/2 tbsp cilantro- chopped finely
1 -1/2 tbsp green onion
1- 1/2 tbsp onion
salt and pepper to taste
In a bowl, mix the mustard and olive oil together until well mixed. Put in worcestershire sauce and tobassco, and mix them well together. Put in the rest of the ingredients, and mix them together just until all is blended together. Don’t mix them too much,or you will crush the avocado. Serve them with warm bread!
Easy enough? Let me know what you think!
