Tuna tataki with black sesame

Although it seems impossible, tomorrow will be the new year’s eve, so today’s recipe is the last recipe of 2018.

If you remember, this year I started with my Ramen low carb recipe and with my purpose of publishing a recipe inspired by Japanese cuisine every month, so it seemed nice to close the year with the latest Japanese recipe: tuna tataki with black sesame. It is a simple recipe, easy to prepare and perfect for holidays, to impress your guests.

This year has been great for me, I have had the opportunity to grow and learn a lot, I have seen far away places, I have experimented with new ingredients and techniques, and above all, thanks to all of you, I have felt that I am contributing something positive with my work in the kitchen. I want to thank all the people who follow me, who read my recipes, who write to me and ask me, all your support makes me keep creating recipes, contents, and tools so that healthy eating is easier and more fun.

Thank you all, with all your heart and happy 2019!
