Tuna Crudo with Citrus Caper Vinaigrette

This tuna crudo with a citrus caper vinaigrette is the absolute best. Talk about the perfect appetizer recipe!


  • ▢1 pound sushi grade ahi tuna

  • ▢1 Persian cucumber thinly sliced

  • ▢1/4th cup extra virgin olive oil

  • ▢zest of half a lemon and half an orange

  • ▢juice of 1 small lemon

  • ▢juice of 1 small orange

  • ▢2 tablespoons caper juice/caper brine

  • ▢1-2 tablespoons capers

  • ▢finish off with toasted sesame seeds, flakey salt, black pepper and rice paper crisps (optional)


  • Make your citrus caper vinaigrette. In a small to medium bowl, whisk together olive oil, orange juice, lemon juice, lemon and orange zest, caper juice, capers and salt and pepper. Set aside.

  • Slice your sushi grade ahi tuna. Slice your fresh tuna with a sharp knife, as thin as you can and place gently layered over each piece on a tray or large serving platter.

  • Assemble your crudo. On top of each slice of ahi tuna, layer on a thin slice of cucumber, and then toss over and drizzle over your vinaigrette. You can either plate the dressing underneath all the fish, and then place the fish on top, or just add over the the dressing once you’re plating.

  • Finishing touches and serve. Finish off the crudo with black pepper, toasted sesame seeds and some flakey salt. You can also top with more lemon/orange zest to finish off the dish
