Cook the Book: Le Bernardin’s Tuna Tartare 'Sandwich'

Looking at the long list of ingredients and multiple recipes-within-a-recipe, it’s hard to believe that Le Bernardin's take on tuna tartare is one of the least labor-intensive dishes on the menu.

If you are intimidated by the sheer quantity, not to mention quality, of ingredients specified in this recipe, consider making just the excellent, Asian-inspired spice rub and ginger oil, which you can work into your existing repertoire of fish dishes. But if you do decide to give it a go, this combination of raw and seared yellowfin tuna, with its bright, spicy sauce and crisp flatbread accompaniment, is a cut above other tartares.
