Happy Thursday everyone!

Like every week, we share with you a healthy recipe. To choose it, this time we did a survey on SHAMADI’s Facebook and although the results have been quite at odds, the tuna tartar won. The coming weeks will try to bring up the rest. Thanks for participating!

The Tuna Tartar is a healthy dish that can be done in many different ways but the basis is always the same: raw and marinated tuna. In our case, we make it with Japanese seaweed, cauliflower, fennel, onion and mustard foam with a touch of wasabi, and we accompany it with spelled bread. But the great thing about this recipe is that you can customize and change the ingredients whenever you want according to your own taste. We suggest our recipe and hopefully we can exchange ideas with you.

Did you know that tuna helps to lose weight and decrease fat because of its high content of Omega 3 and Omega 6? In addition, it also provides calcium and important vitamins like Vitamin A or Vitamin D.

Finishing and presentation of plate: Put the marinated tuna on a plate forming a circle, add the small pieces of bread, distribute the vegetables and seaweeds once drained and then add 5 points of foam with the siphon.

These are the exact steps we use in SHAMADI, considering that the Tuna Tartar is part of a menu with first course, second course and dessert… If you cook it as a single course meal, don’t forget to increase the ingredients.
