Sesame Tuna Ceviche

Tuna ceviche is the perfect summer recipe. It's light, fresh and packed with flavour!

Be sure to buy tuna that has been previously frozen. This will ensure that it is safe to consume raw.

Typically ceviche recipes require to "poach" raw fish or shrimp in a lot of citrus juice for 30 minutes or so before it is consumed. But with this recipe that isn't needed because the tuna will toughen as it's sits in the citrus, which isn't ideal.

Eat this ceviche immediately after making so the tuna doesn't get too tough!
