The Chef: John Sergi
The Restaurant: Planta, Miami Beach
The Dish: Avocado Tartare
1/2 cup roasted beets
3 tbsp raw grated beets
1 tsp lime juice
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp soy sauce
1/2 cup Guacamole (recipe here or use your own)
1 tbsp cilantro
1/2 tsp lime
1/2 small red onion, diced
1/2 tsp jalapeño, diced and seeded
1 tsp pine nuts, toasted
1 tsp crispy shallots
1 tsp taro chips, fried
Method of Preparation:
- In a medium bowl, combine roasted beets, raw grated beets, lime juice, sesame oil, and soy sauce.
- Mix until combined being, folding carefully as to not destroy the beets.
- In separate bowl, combine avocado and smash.
- Add cilantro, lime, red onion, jalapeño, and mix.
- Using a ring mold, layer beet mixture while applying moderate pressure, so it forms to the mold – but not enough to bleed out on to the plate.
- Add avocado mix in the same fashion atop the beet mixture.
- Gently pull the mold up to release onto the plate and garnish with pine nuts and crispy shallots. A splash of olive oil also complements the dish very well.
- Serve with taro chips.
