Chūtoro Kibbeh Nayyeh Recipe

Chutoro Kibbeh Nayyeh

Kibbeh Nayyeh is a Lebanese dish that's typically made with raw lamb, bulgur and spices. This adaptation made with Bluefin Chūtoro is delightfully rich and creamy and yet it's light enough to serve as a canapé with some crisp pita chips dusted with citrusy sumac.
