Recipe of the Month

Tuna Tartare Mirabelle with Red Bell Pepper and Espelette Oil

You'll Need:

½ cup extra virgin olive oil
½ tablespoon pimiento of Espelette powder
3 red bell peppers
1 ½ pounds hand-chopped prime quality yellow fin tuna, chilled
1 tablespoon chopped chives
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 cup olive oil
salt and pepper

For Garnish

chervil
thin slice bread, toasted
potato chips, preferably from Peruvian blue potatoes


Method:

Espellete Oil: In a small saucepan combine the olive oil with the pimento powder and heat it over low heat for 10 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and let it cool. Pass the oil mixture through a sieve lined with a towel into a bowl and transfer it to a squeeze bottle.

Red Bell: Rub the bell peppers with olive oil, put them on a roasting pan, and broil them, turning them once, under a preheated broiler set at 400 degrees until the skin of the peppers turns black (about 5 minutes on each side). Put the peppers in a bowl, cover them with plastic wrap, and let them cool.

Take one pepper at a time, hold it by the stem over the bowl, and with a paring knife make an incision at the end tip. Let the juice run out and reserve it. Put the peppers on a cutting board and cut them to the stems. Remove the core and halve each pepper. Remove the seeds and scrape off the blackened skin. Cut a square from each pepper half, put the squares in a shallow bowl, and strain the reserved juice over the peppers.

Tuna: In a chilled bowl combine the tuna, chives, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt and pepper and mix well. Transfer the tuna to a clean cutting board, divide it into 6 servings, and using a ring mold shape each serving into a round.

To Finish: Transfer the squares of bell pepper from the juice to paper towels and gently pat them dry. Put 1 bell pepper square on a plate, place a serving of the tuna on top of the pepper, and drizzle the Espelette oil around it. Garnish the tuna with the chervil, or other small greens, and the toasted bread slices or potato chips.

Did You Know?

Iron is essential for energy! Find iron in lean meats, beans and green veggies. For your body to best absorb it, pair iron-rich foods with vitamin c – rich foods (i.e. tomatoes, lemons and oranges.)
