Grilled Tuna Rolls

A bright, crunchy dressing that works wonderfully atop these Grilled Tuna Rolls.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon light agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • ¼ cup vegetable or sunflower oil
  • A few dashes of hot pepper sesame oil or your favorite hot sauce
  • 2 shallots, peeled and very thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon roughly chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

Whisk the vinegar, agave, and soy sauce together. While whisking, drizzle in the vegetable oil. Add the hot pepper sesame oil to taste and stir in the shallots and cilantro. If you make this in advance, be sure to stir it well before serving. 

Shallot Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Shallot Cooking Tip

Vegetable should typically be cooked as quickly as possible, as they can become bland and mushy, and lose vitamins and minerals.
