Slow Roasted Sockeye Salmon with Red Curry Sauce
Slow Roasted Sockeye Salmon with Red Curry Sauce

Sockeye salmon doesn't have as much fat as King Salmon, but what it lacks in oil it more than compensates for with its vermillion hue and endless flavor. Like chicken breast, Sockeye salmon can easily be overcooked, which is why this slow roasting technique works so well. By putting the salmon in a low temperature oven, it gently cooks, guaranteeing an ultramoist piece of salmon, that melts in your mouth like butter. Served on a bed of sauteed spinach with a coconut cream red curry, it's a delightful Southeast Asian entree that pairs perfectly with a mound of Jasmine rice.

Crispy Ōtoro Cubes with Kabocha Gnocchi
Crispy Otoro Cubes with Kabocha Gnocchi

Despite having only nine ingredients, this dish presents a wide variety of flavors, textures and colors with crisped cubes of ōtoro, tender kabocha gnocchi and a creamy grilled lemon emulsion that brings the two components together. The salt and rendered fat from the ōtoro forms a crisp golden brown shell on the outside of each cube, while the medium rare center melts like butter on your tongue. The kabocha gnocchi are sweet, tender and brimming with umami from a generous dose of pecorino romano in the dough. All this richness is kept in check by the bracingly tart and mildly bitter grilled lemon emulsion.

Bigeye Tuna Piccata
Bigeye Tuna Piccata

Before being adapted as a frozen dinner staple in the US, Piccata was a delightful Italian preparation of veal, lightly floured and pan-fried before being enrobed in a citrusy emulsion made with the pan drippings from the meat. This modern adaptation recaptures some of that original goodness and takes it to the next level by pan frying medallions of Bigeye Tuna to a perfect medium before glazing them with a shallot, caper and lemon sauce. A generous sprinkling of gremolata on top not only brightens the palette of the dish, it also brightens the flavor profile with verdant parsley, pungent garlic and citrusy lemon zest.

Tuna Terrine with Avocado and Ponzu
Tuna Terrine with Avocado and Ponzu

This simple appetizer comes together quickly and the terrine can be made in advance. For your pittance of effort, you'll be rewarded with a terrine that's mostly tuna, just barely held together by a dashi gelée. The gelée instantly liquefies as it comes in contact with your mouth, swirling around the satiny tuna imbuing it with its smoky brine and intense umami. Paired with rich creamy slices of avocado and dressed with a tangy ponzu that's redolent of fragrant yuzu, this makes for a delightfully light first course, perfect for a mid-summer menu.

Bluefin Tuna Pizza
Bluefin Tuna Pizza

With ruby red sheets of Bluefin tuna lacquered with a sweet soy sauce glaze, atop a crispy sesame tortilla slathered with spicy ssamjang, this tuna sashimi pizza is a playful take on the Neapolitan classic, drawing influences from Mexico, Korea and Japan. Topped with crisp, juicy slices of asian pear and threads of green shiso, each bite of this light appetizer is different from the last. The trick to getting the tuna sliced so thinly is to use a very sharp long knife and a piece of tuna that's still partially frozen.
