Cheesecake Factory Ahi Carpaccio Recipe

1. Use a kitchen mallet to pound the tuna slices gently until they have a flat thickness. To avoid sticking, you can wrap the pieces in parchment paper.[2] 2. To assemble the dish, lay one piece of tuna on each plate and sprinkle the togarashi aioli on top. 3. Lay the avocado slices over the fish. 4. Top the avocado with wasabi pesto, if desired. 5. Garnish the dishes with sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds. 6. Serve the finished entrees with pickled ginger, cucumber salad, and soy-ginger sauce on the side. 7. Store the finished dish in the refrigerator until ready to serve.[4]

Comments

  • Since the recipe contains many specialty ingredients such as soy-ginger sauce, togarashi aioli, marinated cucumber salad, pickled ginger, and black and white sesame seeds, you may find it helpful to shop for these items at an Asian specialty market.[5]
  • Shimchi Togarashi is a Japanese spice mix that is available commercially from many different online sources and specialty stores. To prepare the togarashi aioli yourself, mix the spice with commercial mayonnaise.[6]
  • Make your own cucumber salad by combining one thinly sliced cucumber, 1 tsp rice vinegar, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp sugar.
  • To make wasabi pesto, simply combine wasabi paste with commercially-prepared pesto.
