Appies Cravings

Sashimi Bandito

By on October 27, 2012

Tex-Mex Sushi.  Let it happen to you.    


The Goods:

  • The perfect guac
  • Corn tossed with cilantro, red onion and jalapeño
  • Sushi grade tuna, cubed and tossed with a bit of S&P, neutral oil and ponzu
  • Tortilla chips

The Execution:

To form this tasty little tower I use a 4 inch long piece of PVC pipe.  Guac on the bottom, then the corn salsa, and finally the tuna.  Slide pipe up and off.  Drizzle a bit of ponzu over, garnish with a sprig of cilantro.  Serve with tortilla chips.  

The Takeaway:

We served this dish for friends — a light dinner after a fundraiser for the little one’s school on a recent fall Sunday afternoon.  Go Spruce Street P.S. 397

And here’s the dish getting taken down:

      Thanks Pam! I got the tuna at Whole Foods in Tribeca – once it’s out on the ice display it’s no longer considered sushi grade because it’s touched other fish – so you have to ask them to cut it from a piece in the fridge in the back
