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 and freshly ground black pepper

3 to 6 cucumbers (to make 6 cucumber "boats")

1-ounce black caviar

6 parsley sprigs

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Whilst 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 disc without touching the very bottom of the cucumber. (In other words, leave a "bottom" in the hollowed-out center of the cucumber.)
  3. Presentation:
  4. 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.
