Hawaiian Tiradito

As Executive Chef at Jordan Vineyard & Winery, Todd Knoll is charged with creating dishes that pair with the Sonoma County's Alexander Valley winery's elegant Cabernet Sauvignons and iconic Chardonnays. This light, refreshing Tiradito recipe is an homage to Knoll's Hawaiian roots. Tiradito is a cross between a traditional Latin ceviche and Japanese sashimi. It pairs nicely with the bright acidity and green-apple fruit characters found in the 2009 Jordan Chardonnay.

Step 1
1/4 cup fresh english peas
1/2 cup white corn kernels
2 aji amarillo peppers • seeded and finely diced
1/4 cup passion fruit seeds
2 tbsp cilantro • finely chopped
1 tbsp flat-leafed parsley
1 tbsp shin shoga • peeled and finely diced
1 tbsp fermented chinese black beans • finely chopped
3 tbsp macadamia nuts • toasted and chopped
1/2 cup jordan estate extra virgin olive oil
1 lb onaga (long-tailed red snapper) or hamachi fillet
1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
 sea salt • to taste
Bring a small seasoned pot of water to a boil. Add the peas and cook for 1 minute (Do not cook any longer; the peas should still have bite). Chill the peas in a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Drain and set aside. Repeat same procedure for the corn. (This can be done up to an hour in advance).

Combine the aji amarillos, passion fruit seeds, cilantro, parsley, shin shoga, Chinese black beans and macadamia nuts in a bowl. Stir in the corn and peas to complete the salsa. Set aside.

Place the fish on a flat surface, and using a very sharp knife, carefully remove the skin and discard it. Cut the fish into thin slices. Arrange it in a single layer in a non-reactive dish. Pour the lime juice over the fish and marinate for 10 minutes. Do not marinate longer.

Divide and arrange the fish among four chilled plates. Top each with equal amounts of salsa and sprinkle with a little salt. Serve immediately.

For a light entrée, serve with a side of steamed Forbidden Rice. Enjoy with Jordan Chardonnay. Also pairs nicely with a pisco sour.
