Making the Avocado Ratatouille:

3 cloves Garlic (diced)
1/2 Red Onion (diced)
1 Jalapeno (diced)
1/2 Yellow Pepper (diced)
1/2 Red Pepper (diced)
1 Zucchini (diced)
1 small Eggplant (diced)
1 Avocado (diced)
1/2 Beef Steak Tomato (diced)
1/4 cup White Wine
Olive Oil

(Additional ingredients listed below in recipe).

Step 1

Saute the garlic, onion, and jalapeno in some olive oil. Add the tomato and white wine. Let reduce for about 20 minutes.


Step 2

In the meantime get a skillet blazing hot and add some olive oil. Just before it starts to smoke, add the remaining vegetables (except for the avocado) and saute for 3 to 4 minutes.


Step 3

Mix the vegetables with the tomato base and season with salt/pepper. Mix in the avocado at the very end.


Step 4

Making the Sesame-Crusted Yellowfin Tuna: Ingredients: 1 Fillet Yellowfin Tuna Salt/Pepper Sesame Seeds Olive Oil Toast about 1/8 of a cup of sesame seeds in the oven until it reaches a dark brown color.


Step 5

Dry the tuna with a paper towel and rub on some salt and pepper. Coat it with the darkened sesame seeds, adding some regular ones for contrast. In a hot pan, sear each side of the tuna for about 3 minutes so the edges are done but the inside is still nice and red. Let cool for a few minutes.


Step 6

Making the Tomato-Anchovy Coulis: Ingredients: 3 Roma Tomatoes 1 can Anchovies Juice from 1/2 Lemon 2 Tbsp Olive oil 5-6 drops Tabasco sauce Puree all the ingredients in a blender. Strain well.


Step 7

Ingredients: 1/2 sheet Puff Pastry 1 1/2 Avocados (lightly pureed) Sesame-Crusted Yellowfin Tuna (cut into strips) Avocado Ratatouille Tomato-Anchovy Coulis Roll the pastry out and cut a circle about 5 inches or so.


Step 8

Bake at 400F until golden brown and fluffy.


Step 9

Make a bowl in the puff pastry and place it in the center of the plate. Drizzle the coulis around the pastry. Place a good-sized heap of ratatouille on the shell. Shape it so the top is rather flat and wide. Form the avocado puree on the top in the same manner. Add a small layer of Ratatouille followed by the tuna. Garnish and serve before the avocado puree melts.

I made this recipe pretty much as given.  The recipe certainly is not for one person since there was easily enough for four.  The flavors went together well and it presents beautifuly.  I have been cooking for a long time and the preparation time vastly exceeded the 1/2 hour estimate.
