  • 2 tablespoons minced sweet onion
  • 2 tablespoons minced scallions
  • 1 tablespoon minced chives
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

  • 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 12 small, tender herb sprigs, such as tarragon, parsley or chervil

How to make this recipe

  1. Rinse the onion and scallions in a fine sieve and pat dry; transfer to a bowl. Add the chives, lime juice, sesame oil and the 1 tablespoon of olive oil and toss.

  2. Roll out the caviar between two sheets of plastic wrap 1/8 inch thick. Transfer the caviar to a cutting board and cut into 1/8-inch dice. Add the caviar to the bowl. Fold in the fish and season with salt and pepper. Spoon the tartare onto plates (using a 3-inch ring mold as a guide, if desired). Drizzle with olive oil, garnish with the tomatoes and herb sprigs and serve.
