The hardest part of making tartare is buying a really good piece of fish or beef. After that, it’s an easy task as long as you have a sharp knife. Here, our best recipes for beautiful, delicious and simple tartare (including two for vegetarians!).
1. Tartare Delmonico with Béarnaise Sauce

2. Salmon Trout Tartare with Pressed Caviar and Tomatoes
Salmon trout has a mild, delicate taste, but regular salmon is also delicious in this bright-flavored tartare.
