Tuna catch

Tuna tataki is one of my favorite dishes. If you are one of those who think sushi is excessively raw, this could be the perfect dish for you. If you are having guests, it is also perfect, as it can be prepared a few hours in advance and left cold for that long. This recipe is suitable for 4 starters.


300 g tunfisk fillet

1 dl sesame seeds

1 pot fresh coriander

Neutral oil for frying


1/2 cup soy sauce

1/2 dl hoisinsaus

2 tablespoons liquid honey

1 lime, the juice

2 tablespoons rice vinegar

2 tablespoons grated ginger

1 finely chopped chili

2 finely chopped garlic cloves

5 tablespoons chopped coriander

For serving:

1 fennel

Lemon juice

Lime boats, remember to wash the lime before dividing it

Fresh coriander

Mix together the ingredients for the sauce. Put it cold and leave it for a few hours, so the flavors settle.

Cut the tuna into neat pieces of 3 x 3 cm along the entire length of the piece of fish. Fry the tuna quickly on each side, it should be raw in the middle like a piece of steak.

Pour some of the ponzu sauce onto a flat plate and sesame seeds onto another. Turn the tuna in the sauce, and then in the sesame seeds. Cut into serving pieces.

Cut the fennel into small cubes and drizzle over a little lemon juice. Place the tuna on a plate and sprinkle with fennel and some fresh coriander. Finally add the lime boats. Serve the sauce on the side, in a small bowl, so guests can decide their own amount.
