Tuna Steak Tartare With Anchovies

Tuna is by far my favourite fish! It is so versatile and can be treated like any good fillet steak.  Having not had fresh fish for the entire time we were in Italy, I could not wait to visit Seafood on Sail and see what they had in stock for me. I chose two lovely pieces of tuna, and a fresh mackerel for supper – and the starter was sublime. I made tuna steak tartare to begin our meal and then seared tuna for afterwards.
