Tartare-ly Awesome Tuna

By posting this recipe I am entering a recipe contest sponsored by the Seafood Nutrition Partnership and I am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.

October is National Seafood Month and I couldn’t be more psyched to take part in the Seafood Nutrition Partnership’s Start with Seafood Recipe Contest! As many of you know, seafood is near and dear to my heart not only because it may help reduce the risk of heart disease, but also because you can regularly find me enjoying omega-3 rich oysters, tuna and shrimp.

The abundance and variety of North Carolina seafood isn’t lacking and I’m grateful to enjoy our sea’s bounty year-round. I decided to highlight yellowfin tuna, as it’s ranked as one of the best choices on Seafood Watch’s list as well as being regularly line-caught off the coast of NC. Prepped and ready in less than 15 minutes makes this delicious appetizer Tartare-ly Awesome!

Now let’s kick off this #SeafoodParty with my recipe!
