Tuna Sashimi Rose- Recipe in Bloom
This fun flowery recipe – is merely about presentation- and taking the time to create something just as interesting to look at- as it is delicious to eat. It was inspired by my numerous visits to Deep Sushi in Deep Ellem in Dallas Texas. Kelly and I used to travel to Dallas several times a year for trend research and buying trips. We were introduced to Deep Sushi by a life-long friend- and it’s become our favorite Sushi Experience on the Planet… every trip to Dallas or Fort Worth- includes several trips to Deep Sushi.
Deep Sushi- learned quickly of my affinity for flowers- and both Kelly and I are fond of Sashimi- (we’re not big rice eaters- so we love the Fish- just by itself). The chefs at Deep Sushi- would always arrange our Ahi Tuna into a rose- presto- a great idea for “Life in Bloom”
Start with a Sushi Grade Piece of Ahi Tuna- slice into thin strips- and then simply arrange the pieces to look like a rose… it’s very simple. You start with a tight coil in the center- and the just add more pieces around the outside to form the rosette!
I like laying it on a bed of some type of foliage- and cut Cabbage works well- and I add a piece of Asparagus as the stem- and use Basil leaves to transform the Asparagus into a thornless rose stem… I also like the Basil flower – as a flower accent- it gives it a more garden appearance.
I hope you enjoy this concept- and there are lots more dishes- that can be arranged like flowers- stay tuned for Season 3
