Snack Time - Asian Tuna Tartare

My husband has been traveling this week which generally means I don't do a whole lot of cooking. I however do not want to indulge in crazy amounts of take out {well thats a lie, I would love to but my rear is big enough} so I thought I would whip up one of my favorite snacks and luckily since we make tuna so often {I know my husbands presentation is better then mine}. I had everything in the house. It's a super easy, quick snack that sounds far more impressive then it actually is. Oh & the reason the "sip" is missing is because I just stuck with what I had in the house and sipped my favorite Sauvignon Blanc instead of making a cocktail but if I had, I bet this sake cocktail would have been a great pairing! 
Check out all the delicious details below. 


Ingredients

{regular mayonnaise will work but japanese mayo is a more seasoned version}
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon sriacha 
1 sushi grade super frozen tuna fillet - thawed
{found in a seafood department, ask the fishmonger for the sushi grade
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon sesame seeds
1 ripe avocado

Directions

mix wet ingredients in bowl & grate the garlic into, stir to evenly blend
cube the tuna steak avocado and put into wet ingredients to marinate
microwave sticky rice and let cool, with wet hands form the sticky rice into petite patties to hold the tuna tartare for serving. Top the rice patties with the tuna & sprinkle with sesame seeds. 

Enjoy!
