  • 1/4 cup picholine olive brine
  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed Meyer lemon juice
  • 1 pound sushi-quality yellow fin tuna, thinly sliced across the grain
  • 3 ounces (about 18) picholine olives, pitted and slivered
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bulb fennel, thinly sliced
  • 2 Meyer lemons, zested


Step 1

In a glass baking dish or a wide, shallow, nonreactive bowl, mix together olive brine and lemon juice. Gently toss in tuna slices and olive slivers. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, occasionally moving tuna slices around gently in marinade to ensure that slices cure evenly.

Step 2

Just before serving, strain the tuna slices from marinade. Divide tuna between 4 to 6 appetizer plates. Spoon a little marinade (with olive slivers) over the tuna. Grind black pepper, to taste, over each serving. Garnish with fennel and lemon zest, and serve immediately.
