Almost ten years ago, my husband and I honeymooned on the island of Huahini in French Polynesia . It was an incredibly amazing vacation — in every way.
We ate a ton of fresh fish and tropical fruits , all delicious. However, the most memorable dish we ate was an Ahi Tuna Tartare at a small, charming restaurant in the village. (We had to take a boat to get to the village, by the way.) During the week, we went to this restaurant several times, just for the tartare!
I’ve kept the recipe stored away in my mind — which was easy because I remembered two important things: one, including the salt there were five ingredients, and two, the size the cuts. The size of bits of ginger and onion here, make for a wonderful final texture, which totally adds to how good it tastes!
