West Steak & Seafood’s Heirloom Tomato Carpaccio with Hamachi

Ingredients
• 2 heirloom tomatoes
• 1/2 pound hamachi, sashimi grade
• 1 calamari steak (cut into fettuccine size)
• 1 carrot (cut into fettuccine size)
• 1 yellow zucchini (cut into fettuccine size)
• 1 green zucchini (cut into fettuccine size)
• 1/4 pound cherry tomatoes (slowly roasted in olive oil, salt and pepper)
• 4 ounces Salsa Verde
• 2 ounces balsamic honey glaze (1/2 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup honey; bring to a boil)
• 1 Tablespoon truffle oil

Salsa Verde ingredients

• 1/4 cup basil
• 1/4 cup parsley
• 1 Tablespoon capers
• 3 pieces of cornichon
• 1 hard-boiled egg
• 1 Tablespoon olive oil
• 1/4 cup diced small potatoes, blanched

For the Salsa Verde: In a Robot Coupe (Cuisinart), chop all ingredients except for the potatoes. Place the mixture into a bowl and add the potatoes; season with salt and pepper.

For plating: Slice the heirloom tomatoes thin and place on the plate. Blanch the calamari and vegetables in boiling salted water, cool in an ice-water bath and drain. Toss with the Salsa Verde and place over the tomatoes.

Sear the hamachi in a sauté pan with oil (rare). Slice thin like sashimi and place around the heirloom and vegetable salad. Garnish with roasted tomatoes, drizzle truffle oil and balsamic reduction, and serve.
