Wasabi, yuzui & Irizake-flavored Tuna Tartare

When I want just one more little dish for dinner...
This is a perfect quick dish.

With the addition of my homemade irizake, this simple appetizer tastes so elegantly unique and delicious.

For two, mince 4 oz fresh tuna (for sashimi), and just mix with 1T minced scallion, 1/2tsp wasabi, 1T irizake, 1/4 tsp Maldon salt, and 1 tsp yuzu juice.  Divide the mixture into 2 small bowls.

I ran out of shiso, so I garnished it with a cilantro leaf:-)  Irizake gives such a nice umami taste to the dish.
