Tuna Tartar

Recipe from Harris Teeter's Fresh Catch Newsletter Tuna can cruise up to 55 miles per hour, and they are constantly in motion. To keep this speed machine going, the tuna eats up to ten percent of its body weight daily. Depending on the variety, weights average from 10 pounds up to 600 pounds per fish. The average consumption of tuna in America is 3.6 pounds per person, per year, most of which is canned
