Tuna Tartare

When I meet new people and they ask me where Iโ€™m from, I say:
โ€œI am made in Egypt ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ฌ , finished in the USA ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ, with a dash of Ireland ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช , and a little bit of UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง
But when it comes to trying new food and testing new recipes my darlings, I am every nationality on planet earth ๐ŸŒย That being said, please let me introduce you to one of my most favorite Asian appetizers, the finger-licking delicious and refreshing Tuna Tartare ๐Ÿฃย 
No more mid-week trips to my favorite Sushi place, because mine turned out just as good ๐Ÿคฉ

To make youโ€™ll need:

For the Tuna layer:
๐Ÿฃ 1 lb sushi grade Ahi Tuna
๐Ÿฃ 1 teaspoon grated garlic
๐Ÿฃ 1 teaspoon grated ginger
๐Ÿฃ 1 tablespoon minced scallions
๐Ÿฃ 2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro 
๐Ÿฃ 2 tablespoons soy sauce
๐Ÿฃ 1 tablespoon lime juice
๐Ÿฃ 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
๐Ÿฃ 1 tablespoon sesame oil
๐Ÿฃ 1 tablespoon sweet chili sauce
๐Ÿฃ 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce (optional)
๐Ÿฃ 2 tablespoons white and black sesame seeds

For the Avocado layer:
๐Ÿฅ‘ 2 medium avocados 
๐Ÿฅ‘ 2 tablespoons chopped scallion
๐Ÿฅ‘ 2 tablespoons lime juice
๐Ÿฅ‘ 1 tablespoon sesame oil
๐Ÿฅ‘ 1/2 teaspoon salt

๐Ÿฃ First prepare the Tuna marinade. In a bowl mix the grated garlic, ginger, scallion, cilantro, lime juice, sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, sriracha, and sesame seeds, until combined. All the ingredients and measurements in detail are listed in the previous post.
๐Ÿฃ Pat tuna fillet dry, on both sides, with paper towel
๐Ÿฃ using a sharp knife, cut Tuna into 1 inch dices.
๐Ÿฃ Add the Tuna pieces to the marinade and mix well.
๐Ÿฃ In a separate bowl, cut avocado into medium size pieces. Add the salt, scallion, sesame oil, and lemon juice, and roughly mash and mix it with a fork.
๐Ÿฃ To assemble the Tartare, oil the inside of a mold or ramekin with a brush, add a layer of avocado and press it down, then top it with a layer of Tuna and press it down.ย 
๐Ÿฃ Carefully remove the mold and voila! You have a Tuna Tartare tower. Enjoy with rice crackers or wonton chips.
