What the Heck is Tuna Tartare?

One of the things that I have been using my iPhone for lately is some extreme cooking. This is not something that I am normally accustomed to, but I have to admit that I am tempted by all of the recipe apps on my iPhone! I have always watched Top Chef, and I have wondered what some of the fancier items are, and also how difficult they may be to create. The first item on my list was tuna tartare, but I didn't know exactly what it was...

I started researching it on my iPhone, and I found out that tartare is chopped raw fish that is specially seasoned. It is something used as a spread for toast or bread, or it can even be served by itself in a special dish. One of the recipes that I began with was fairly simple, but it had a little bit of Asian flair to the tuna tartare. It contained lime juice, wasabi powder, soy sauce, red pepper, avocados, and jalapeno peppers. This ended up making a fun little dish that a few of my friends enjoyed, and I promise you that they were highly impressed that I was able to pull off this culinary skill with only the help of my iPhone!
