We’ve paired this Ahi Crudo with our Grenache Blanc, Front Porch Farms 2021.
Thank you chef Jamil Peden and the staff at Relish for this recipe.
- 3 lbs highest-quality yellowfin tuna, arctic char or other fresh fish
- lemon juice
- olive oil
- shallots, finely diced (about 1/4 cup)
- optional : 2 tsp caper, drained well and chopped
- optional : 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, chervil sprigs, other herbs for garnish
- sea salt
Place the tuna in a freezer for 10 minutes; this helps it firm up which makes it easier to slice.
Use a sharp chef’s knife, cut the tuna into roughly 1/8-inch slices. As you work, gently press each each slice onto the cutting surface with your fingers, to flatten it then transfer to a large serving platter or individual small plates, overlapping them slightly and arranging neatly. Pour sauce over and garnish.
