The Amontillado will produce an explosion of flavor in combination with all the ingredients of the recipe. It will enhance a fresh spicy sensation on the palate, harmonize with the saline contribution of the soybeans and its notes of toasted hazelnuts will complete the range of flavors of the dish.
Ingredients for 4 people
400 g of bluefin almadraba tuna
15 g Sherry Vinegar
10 g of Cream
1 spring onion or half a small sweet onion
10g black sesame
10 g de wasabi
20 g soy sauce
10 g grated fresh ginger
10 g extra virgin olive oil
A few drops of sriracha (optional)
2 avocados (optional)
Cut the bluefin tuna in one centimeter cubes and mix in a bowl with the cream, sherry vinegar, wasabi, ginger and salt to taste. Let stand for 10 minutes. Then add the EVOO, the soy sauce, the chopped spring onion or sweet onion and correct the salt if necessary. Leave to marinate for another half hour in the refrigerator. If a spicy touch is desired, a few drops of sriracha sauce can be added.
As an option for serving, a couple of avocados can be cut into small cubes to be used as a base for the tartar. Serve the tartar and decorate with the black sesame seeds. It can be accompanied on the side with a little wasabi for those who want more fresh spice and a bowl with a little of the marinade.
Pairing Palo Cortado with food
"Meditation wine," ideal to be slowly appreciated, to become totally immersed in the full range of well balanced sensations this exceptional wine has to offer. It may accompany nuts, cured cheeses and, at the table, the more concentrated consommés, stews and gelatinous meats (bull's tail, cheeks...)
