Makes 4 first course servings.                               

Very fresh, top quality tuna makes this very easy to prepare dish so inviting. I serve it on a bed of grated radishes with crispy crackers.  


  • 1 pound sashimi quality tuna
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 scallions, including the green part, thinly sliced    
  • 12 Kalamata olives, pitted, cut in half
  • Freshly ground black pepper                     


  • 6 large radishes, coarsely grated


  1. Cut the fish into ½ inch cubes and place into a bowl.
  2. Combine with the remaining ingredients and season to taste.


Pat the grated radishes with paper towels; they tend to be wet. Arrange the radishes on a       plate with the tuna in the center.
