I never thought I'd utter these words...

Tuesday, June 29, 2010....


I found my go-to tuna tartare recipe!

Why would anyone make this statement? Maybe a restaurant owner. But, I'm not that. My hubby would tell me I'm nuts because tuna tartare is glorified bait. (Hubby fishes and he considers sushi to be bait).

Last year, I started really using my cookbooks and found out that the best rice recipe is in the Martha Stewart Cooking School book and Sheila Lukins found the best cooking technique for roasting asparagus which can be applied to other veggies and
I can state, without hesitation, Eric Ripert has my go-to tuna tartare recipe.

It's simple, elegant with perfect flavoring.

If interested, the recipe is in his A Return to Cooking cookbook.

Oh good for you that you found your recipe. Last Christmas my mom went INSANE about a knot cookie recipe she couldn't find. They make Tuna Tartare on all the cooking shows, it must be delicious! Have fun making your dish! =)

I have never had Tuna Tartare in my life. But if you say it's awesome then I totally believe you. :)

Maybe I shall look it up.

Lora said...

I am interested! And I will be going.

(who knew bait would be the thing that got me commenting? It's just that I love it so damned much. I had tartare with blackened sesame seeds the other day, and it was AMAZING!)

I've been trying to start cooking again, but it's not going so well. We're having eggs tonight for dinner....again. Glad you are finding lots of good stuff though.

Eric Ripert is the go-to for EVERYTHING. He is made of awesome. I'm so glad he's a permanent judge on Top Chef this season!!!

That sounds like raw tuna, hmmm. I really like albacore tuna, prepared any way.

JennyMac said...

I LOVE tuna tartare and will actually be ordering it tonight at this fab restaurant. Now, are you going to give me the recipe is the question? Do NOT try to negotiate brownies for the recipe either, Misses. lol.

I'm with you husband - bait is bait.

Now a good raw piece of cow - that's the ticket.

I like finding things I've lost, but I won't have anything tartare!

Melanie – It is yummy, but wish hubby liked it so we could have more often.

Brian – LOL….I’m laughing because I don’t small kids would be a fan of tuna tartare.

Salt – it is.

Lora – that does sound yummy.

Megan – as I told you, breakfast dinner is the best and sometimes a sandwich for breakfast is great too!

LiLu – Totally agree!

Herding Cats – I’d think I’d lose people with that column. Although, I do have some cooking stuff I do want to write about in the near future.

TechnoBabe – It is and it’s great if fish is fresh and prepared properly.

JennyMac – check your inbox, but I still can’t believe no brownies.

Dan – I’ve never had beef carpaccio, but would like to try.

Godessunseen101 – Your mom made tuna tartare? Wow. You’re one lucky girl.

BV – LOL.
