Here is a great appetizer I made a few weeks ago.  It is a very easy recipe that packs a good punch.  In this recipe you take the tangy guavas and juice half of them and mix with vanilla bean, for sweet. For the spice you add in some fresh cayenne.  Add a little soy for salt, and a little rice vinegar for acid.  That is the dressing and really, the rest of this dish comes down to the freshness of the tuna, the guava, and radishes.  Simple but delicious.  Here is the recipe I hope you enjoy it!

 

Guava vanilla tuna rose

 

Guava dressing

5 guava juiced

1 vanilla bean scrapped

1 cayenne chile chopped fine

1/4 cup seasoned rice wine vinegar 

2 tbsp of white soy

 

4 white and red radishes sliced thin

10 oz of tuna sliced 1/8 inch thick

2 guava sliced thin seeds removed

 

For the dressing,

Place all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl and mix well.  Season with pinch of salt if need be. 

To finish,

Alternate in a rose like pattern the tuna, guava and radishes. Continue wrapping all 3 ingredients until you have about 6-7 pieces of tuna. Wrap the outside of the rose with radishes.  To finish drizzle the rose with a few spoonfuls of the dressing. Serve and enjoy!
