Sesame Honey Ceviche

This recipe comes from Chef Rachel and includes a ceviche (raw yet cooked) seafood component.  Ceviche is considered one of the easiest dishes to make.  It is made by marinating seafood in an acid such as our Serrano honey vinegar.  It must be consumed when fresh and left to marinate the correct time (not too long either).  If it is served too soon, it will be raw and if left to marinate too late, it will be overcooked and tough.  Here is a link to an article about ceviche:  https://www.seriouseats.com/2011/07/the-food-lab-ceviche-and-the-science-of-marin.html

DIRECTIONS

Prepare 4 cups cooked quinoa set aside and allow to fully cool to room temperature.

Prepare the tuna marinade by placing all marinade ingredients into a medium bowl and whisking. Add cut up tuna and toss to coat. Refrigerate tuna while preparing the rest of the recipe for up to 20 minutes.

Make the Miso Dressing by adding all dressing ingredients to the bowl of a blender or food processor. Process on high until the mixture is fully blended and creamy. Set aside.

Just before serving, in a large bowl toss 6 cups of mixed greens with 4-6 tablespoons of miso dressing. Compose the bowl by adding 1 cup of cooked quinoa to the bottom of each bowl. Add a mound of dressed mixed greens to the top of the quinoa. Divide the cut up avocado and cucumber to each salad. Place equal portions of the tuna on top of the greens. Place cut up nori strips atop salads and serve immediately.

Serves 4 as a light meal or 6 as a small salad
