How to Make Tuna Sashimi at Home


Tuna sashimi may sound like a complicated recipe that you would never attempt to make yourself. But it isn't as hard as it sounds — as long as you have the specialty ingredients needed and very high-quality tuna, you can make this tasty Japanese treat at home for less than you would spend at a sushi restaurant.

Things You'll Need

  • 1/2 lb. high-quality tuna
  • 1/2 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1/4 cup radishes
  • Scallions
  • 1/2 cup ponzu sauce
  • 1 12 tbsp. hot chili oil
  • Using a very sharp knife, cut the tuna in thin chunks. Place the tune slices on a serving platter or plate.

  • Season the tuna slices with sesame seeds and salt according to personal taste.

  • Thinly slice the radishes and scallions. Place them in a bowl and toss.

  • Bring the chili oil and ponzu sauce to a boil in a saucepan.

  • Pour the sauce over each serving of tuna.

  • Sprinkle the scallions and radishes over the tuna.

Tips & Warnings

  • Quality tuna sashimi requires the best grade of tuna possible. Look for "sashimi-grade" tuna.
  • Do not leave the fish out for long periods of time while you are learning to make sushi.
