This is super simple yet delicious way of making a tuna tartare. Perfect for appetizer or an easy lunch!


  • 1 lb of ahi tuna (sushi grade)
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of pesto sauce ( store bought works great or check the recipe guide of a homemade one)
  • 1/4 cup of toasted pine nuts
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pinch of flaky salt
  • Chips or crackers or taste or even mini slices of toasted baguette to serve


Cut the tuna in really small cubes (or ask that they do it for you when you buy it).

Toss with the olive oil, pesto sauce, a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Taste and adjust seasoning to your liking.

Transfer to a serving dish, and sprinkle the pine nuts on top and tiny bit of flaky salt. Arrange the crackers/chips around and enjoy!!
