This greek tuna fish starter was the first ever recipe I posted on my dutch blog “gerechtenweb“, back already in 2007. I rediscovered it recently, and decided to translate it in English also.


  • 200 gr tuna (fresh is the best, canned is also ok)
  • 4 pickles
  • about 15 black stoned olives (green is also good, but black tastes better)
  • 1 shallot
  • 4 vine tomatoes
  • good olive oil
  • soy sauce
  • mustard
  • fresh ginger root
  • 100 grams of feta cheese in cubes
  • cress for decoration (you can also use rucola salad or so)

Tuna mixture:

  • Finely chop the tuna steak.
  • Finely chop the pickles, the olives and the shallots and add them to the tuna.
  • Let the tomatoes scorch in boiling water so that you can easily remove the skin.
  • Remove the seeds and cut the flesh into small cubes.
  • Add this to the mixture as well.


  • Take 6 parts of olive oil and one part of soy sauce.
  • Add a pinch of mustard.
  • Grate a lot of ginger and add it.
  • if you want, you can also use additional herbs with black pepper.
  • Mix the dressing well.
  • Add a bit of the dressing to the tuna mixture.
  • Put both the tuna mixture and the dressing in the refrigerator for an hour.


  • Fill a mold with the mixture and turn it on a plate.
  • Garnish with feta cubes and a tuft of cress.
  • Sprinkle with the remaining dressing (first mix the dressing well)
