Ingredients
  • 6 ounces sushi tuna
  • 1 teaspoon chopped chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped capers
  • 1 teaspoon chopped shallots
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 -ounce extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 to 6 cucumbers (to make 6 cucumber "boats")
  • 1 -ounce American farmed black caviar
  • 6 parsley sprigs
Directions

With a heavy sharp knife, chop tuna into very small slices. In a mixing bowl, combine tuna, chives, capers, shallots, lemon juice, oil, salt and freshly ground pepper and chill for 1 hour. While tuna is chilling, prepare cucumber boats. Peel cucumber and cut into 2-inch long cylinders. With a teaspoon, scoop out the seeds from inside the cucumber disk without touching the very bottom of the cucumber. (In other words, leave a "bottom" in the hollowed-out center of the cucumber.) Season cucumber with salt and pepper. Fill with 1-ounce of tuna tartare. Top with 1/8 teaspoon of caviar. Finish with a sprig of parsley.
