Cool as a Cucumber, Hot as Wasabi Tuna appetizer

4 years ago
I may not be considered a fashionista, maybe more a foodista. I don't always wear the trendiest clothes but I can certainly dress a dining table with some tasty sips and nibbles.  For the trunk show, I made five different appetizers, some inspired from Pinterest...
 
and a fav: Cool as a Cucumber, Hot as Wasabi Tuna Appetizer. These are easy little one bite yin-yang wonders! Since the tuna in this dish is raw, it is important to use high quality, sushi-grade tuna purchased on the same day you will be serving. For tips on purchasing the most nutritious and sustainable fish check out Cooking Light's video here.
