    The meat should be chopped finely using a sharp knife – if you can not get it as fine a you want then once you have cut it up quite fine blitz it in a food processor for a second or two at a time and do this once to three times only.

  • 3.

    You do not want to do it long as it will heat the meat which is not a good thing.

  • 4.

    Put meat in the bowl with the other ingredients and fold them through so that they are evenly and well mixed through the meat.

  • 5.

    Taste and adjust seasoning if needed – it can be on the salty side.

    Serve Tartare on a plate, generously scatter the garnish over the top and drizzle a little olive oil around the plate. Accompany with some lightly toasted bread.
