Tuna tartar with fresh wasabi

20 Feb 2021
by Jay van de wal

I've always wanted to work with real fresh wasabi. This really cannot be compared to what many people know as wasabi, a smoother and much more balanced taste.

I made an appetizer, a delicious tuna tartare with wasabi mayonnaise, sesame kletskop, cucumber salsa and a delicious lightly smoked soy vinaigrette.

I use many different ingredients. However, the preparation is not complicated, but does require some creativity for a nice layout.


  4 persons
35 minutes


  • 300 gr tuna sashimi quality
  • Fresh wasabi
  • 2 limes
  • 100 gr kewpi mayonnaise
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 radishes
  • 50 gr soybeans
  • 6 tbsp olive oil arbeguina smoked
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp yuzu juice
  • Pepper and salt
  • 1 tbsp valderema olive oil
  • Vene cress
  • 50 gr orange juice
  • 75 gr butter
  • Pinch of sambal
  • 42.5 g flour
  • 120 gr icing sugar
  • 35 gr sesame seeds (white and black)
  • 10 gr chives


Tuna tartare

Cut the tuna into thin cubes and coat with olive oil, chopped chives, zest of half a lime, pepper and salt. Keep cool until use.

Wasabi mayonnaise

Mix the kewpi mayonnaise with 1 tbsp fresh wasabi and a few drops of lime juice. Fill a piping bag or bottle.

Lightly smoked soy vinaigrette

Mix 6 tbsp smoked olive oil with 2 tbsp lime juice and 1 tbsp soy sauce.

Sesame klatkop

Mix orange juice, sugar and flour until smooth. Add sesame seeds, pinch of coarse sea salt and pinch of sambal. Melt butter without coloring and add while stirring. Let batter stiffen in the refrigerator for 3 hours. Spread batter on parchment paper into a circle and bake in an oven at 175 degrees until golden brown.

Cucumber salsa

Cut 1/3 cucumber into very small brunoise (cubes) and mix with 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tbsp yuzu juice, a little lime zest. 1 heaped teaspoon of fresh wasabi and pinch of sea salt.


Place a large stick in the middle of a plate and place another smaller stick in it so that you can make a nice round of your tartare. Tuna tartare with wasabi mayonnaise. Divide the salsa, radish, sweet and sour cucumber balls, soybeans and sesame kletskop over your tartare. Also divide a little cress over the tartare. A lot of smoked soy vinaigrette in the middle

Enjoy your meal!
