1 Bunch Cilantro

1 T Chopped Shallots

1 T Chopped Garlic

1 T Dijon Mustard

2 T Fresh Lime Juice

Southwest Slaw

2 Cups Julienne Napa Cabbage

½ Cup Shredded Carrots

½ Cup Julienne English Cucumber

½ Cup Julienne Red Pepper

¼ Cup Chopped Green Onions

¼ Cup Chopped Cilantro

Mix all ingredients with the southwest-lime vinaigrette and season with salt and pepper


Tuna

Cut Tuna into 2 oz pieces and brush with vinaigrette and season with salt and pepper Allow to marinate for about five minutes (any longer and it will start to cook the fish) Grill to your preference.

We fry white corn tortillas fresh everyday but if you don’t have a deep fryer you can crisp them in a sauté pan with a little olive oil or you could use any of your favorite tortillas. Now just smear on a little aioli, place your slaw and fish on top. Add a dollop of the salsa and a squeeze of fresh lime juice and you are ready to enjoy.

See how it's done!
