  • To Make Tuna Tartare:
    Place tuna in a bowl. In a separate bow, mix all other ingredients (except salt and pepper) with a whisk. Fold mixture into tuna, season with salt and pepper, and finish with basil.
  • To Make Potato Pancakes:
    Wash potatoes and place in pot. Cover with salted water and simmer till done.
  • Peel the potatoes, grate them on a box grater or mash them with a fork. Put the potatoes in a large bowl and add the onion, oil, butter and egg. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Allow to cool, and then divide the potato mixture into 4 parts.
  • Heat butter and canola oil in an 8-inch skillet over medium heat (if you have two 8-inch skillets, cook 2 pancakes at a time). Add one quarter of the potato mixture, and cook for 4 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom. Turn the cake and cook for about 4 minutes longer, or until browned on the bottom side and cooked through. Transfer to paper towels to drain briefly, then transfer to a baking sheet and keep warm in the oven while you cook the remaining pancakes. Serve hot with tuna tartare.
