8 tbsp. arugula microgreens (see your local farmer)
2 ring molds (2 1/2" wide x 3")   

Tuna Poke Dressing

1/3 cup sesame oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
3/4 tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
3/4 tbsp. chipotle pepper paste
1 lime, halved and juiced
1 tbsp. shallot, minced

Guacamole

2 avocados, pitted, skinned and diced 1/4"
1/2 cup yellow onions, finely diced
1 jalapeño, stemmed, seeded and minced
1 cup ripe tomato, diced small
2 limes, halved and juiced
1/4 cup cilantro, washed and chopped
1/2 cup green onions, bias cut 1/4"
1 pinch cayenne pepper
2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. coarse ground black pepper   

Instructions:

  • Cut all items according to specifications.
  • Gently fold together all ingredients and place into a clean storage container.
  • Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the guacamole so that no air gets in until ready to serve.

Tommy's Flatbread

flatbread sheets
olive oil (or olive oil blend)
salt and pepper

Instructions:

  • Lay out sheets of flatbread on a sheet pan.
  • Brush with olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the bread.
  • Place in 250° F oven for 8-10 minutes, or until crisp.

Tuna Poke Plating Instructions:

  • In a clean mixing bowl, gently mix all ingredients together except for the guacamole.
  • Toss well to coat the tuna evenly. Begin to build the molds starting with the guacamole at 1 1/2 oz.; add 1 1/2 oz. of the tuna, then 1 1/2 oz. more of the guacamole and finish with 1 1/2 oz. of the tuna.
  • Lay out 5 pieces of flatbread in front of the ring mold and garnish with 1 tbsp. of the arugula microgreens.
  • Gently remove the ring.
  • Serve with crisp tortilla chips if you don't have flatbread.
