Ota

 

I just began a journey around the world; through food.

Going to cook a recipe from every country/dependent territory in the world.

1st up Tokelau, which was challenging to find a national dish for.

Ota seemed to be the best match. Added lemongrass, Korean chili, mint, garlic and ginger to the typical recipe.

Recipe:

6 servings as an appetizer

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. Sashimi Grade Tuna, cut into bite sized cubes
  • 2 Limes, zested and juiced
  • 1 small piece of Lemongrass, harder outer leaves removed, smashed with meat tenderizer or back of knife

  • Small handful of Mint, chopped
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced

Instructions
