Tommy Bahama Ahi Poke Napoleon

Tommy Bahama Recipe

Serves 8

1/2 lb. ahi tuna steak, cut 1/4" x 1/4"
1 cup Tuna Poke Dressing (see recipe below)
3 cups Guacamole (see recipe below)
40 pieces Tommy's Flatbread (see recipe below)
8 tablespoons arugula microgreens
2 ring molds (2 1/2" wide x 3")

Tuna Poke Dressing:
1/3 cup sesame oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
3/4 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
3/4 tablespoon chipotle pepper paste
1 lime, halved and juiced
1 tablespoon  shallot, minced
4 teaspoons cilantro, washed and finely chopped
4 teaspoons  parsley, washed and finely chopped
4 tablespoons capers

In a clean mixing bowl, whisk all ingredients together with a wire whip. Stir before each use when blending with the tuna.

2 avocados, pitted, skinned and diced 1/4"
1/2 cup yellow onions, finely diced
1 jalapeno, 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 teaspoons  kosher salt
1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

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

Lay out sheets of flatbread on a sheet pan. Brush with olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the bread.
Place in 250 degrees 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 tablespoon of the arugula microgreens. Gently remove the ring.

Note:  Serve with crisp tortilla chips if you don't have flatbread.
