    Manami's Note:

    I just saw the Barefoot Contessa make this on her "Book Party" show, Barefoot Contessa Family Style, 2002. It reminded me of an affair I attended awhile back and they served Tuna Tartare -- I loved it! This runs the closest second to the one I had. I hope you will try it -- it is scrumptious! It requires at least 1 hour chilling time while the flavors marry.

      This is fabulously delicious! It made a truly tasty sushi filling. Changes: I cut way down on the oil, and subbed 1/2 sesame oil for an even more Asian flavor. And instead of hot pepper sauce, I crushed some dried hot red peppers. Also, I didn't use as much lime juice---because I didn't have enough. Still tasted great.
