Hope everyone here in the northeast has pulled out of that snow storm!
This “recipe” is easy, no cooking involved. Raw, actually. This was my morning’s breakfast, no kidding. I allow myself to eat unusually at whim.
1/2 Asian pear (also known as apple pear), cored and diced small
1/2 cucumber, peeled and de-seeded, then cut into those fine strips you should remember from sushi restaurants.
about 2 ounces raw fish, sliced.
1/3 sheet of nori (seaweed), carefully shredded along perforations.
You don’t have to peel the pear, unless there are bad spots. As for the cuke seeds, I ate them as I made this dish. 🙂
Note, it is best to cut the raw fish very fine, which is easiest to do when it is still partially frozen. I used yellowfin tuna, but any really super fresh saltwater fish will do, that you happen to like.
Arrange as suits your sense of whimsy.
Add on the side a dollop of wasabi, and sprinkle the dish with a bit of finely sliced green onion. (I didn’t have any of the latter, but it makes for a nice presentation.)
(This dish was also going to have a couple avocado slices, but the avocado was well past its prime.)
