  • This cool tasty raw fish appetizer will star on any table. Dress it up for the holidays or keep it simple for any time.
  • Yellowfin tuna works fine for this recipe, If you want a richer tartar, try using bigeye tuna which has a higher oil content.
  • Always hand chop your tuna. Cut it into thin strips then dice it coarsely. Don't use a food processor as tuna is too delicate.
  • This recipe has a little kick. For milder poke, use less sriracha.

  • 1 pound tuna, hand chopped
  • 3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tobiko (flying fish roe),black or red.
  • 2 tablespoon green onions, very thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons chili oil
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha hot sauce
  • pinch of salt


  • Place chopped tuna in a bowl, add all ingredients. Gently fold ingredients together until just mixed. I save a little of the tobiko for garnish on top of the tartare when I serve it.
  • This recipes makes about 20 one ounce servings. Enjoy!
