Here's my summer slow food recipe for this week (also posted on my Facebook!). With kudos to Sam Choy (I changed it to my own liking!).
Spicy 'Ahi & Avocado Summer Salad
1. Cube up some LOCAL 'ahi poke (about 1 lb.) and 2 small LOCAL avocadoes.
2. Mix 1/4 cup of mayonnaise, 2 tsp. hot chili sauce (Sriracha) to desired taste, 1 T. shoyu, and 1 tsp. garlic (pressed or minced). Toss this chili mayo sauce with the 'ahi and avocado. Set aside.
3. Make a salad dressing out of 6 T. ponzu flavored soy sauce and 1 tsp. sesame oil. Add sugar and black pepper to taste. Sprinkle this over a bed of lettuce leaves (or chopped/torn leaves).
4. Layer a scoop of the 'ahi/avocado mixture on top of the lettuce bed. Then top it with LOCAL garnishes of your choice: sliced LOCAL cucumbers, LOCAL tomatoes, LOCAL cabbage, LOCAL papaya, etc. I also topped it with nori (seaweed) cut into strips. He 'ono la!
