Topping:
1 cup Mayonaise
1/2 cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp Minces Garlic
Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix. You are looking for a consistency like peanut butter. If too thin add more parmesan

Process:
Fillet the Snapper leaving the skin and scales on. This will help hold the moisture in the fish. Pat dry with paper towel. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste. Place fillets on the grill or under the broiler at 350 degrees. Cook at temperature for approximately 15 minutes or until fillet is white. Add topping. Cook an additional 5 to 7 minutes until topping takes on a golden color and serve. Do not overcook.

Tuna and Fresh Basil Rolls

IMG_2338.JPG

First off, I can not take credit for this recipe, but I will take credit for sharing it with you guys. We made this last night and it was AWESOME!!!!!

2 - 3 pounds of raw tuna loin
Fresh basil leaves
Egg roll wraps
1 Tbsp water
1 or 2 Eggs

Sauce
1c mayonnaise
Wasabi paste
1 lime

Cut Raw Tuna into strips in 3 to 4 inches pieces. Should be the diameter of one of your fingers.
Chop or tear basil into small pieces. In a bowl, beat the egg and add one tablespoon of water. Layout 1 wrap at a time in a diamonds shape. Keep the other wraps covered with a slightly damp towel or paper towel. Place the tuna strip in the middle of the wrap along with the basil. Roll the wrap half way then fold the ends in, brush with the egg wash, and finish rolling. (the egg just helps the wrapper stick to itself)

In a deep fryer or in a skillet with oil covering the bottom, fry rolls until golden brown. Do not overcook.

Sauce: In a mixing bowl add mayo, 1/2 tube of wasabi paste (or more to taste), zest of 1/2 a lime, and the juice of 1 fresh lime. mix until well blended. It will be slightly green in color.

Serve on a platter with the dipping sauce. YUM!

Special Thank you to Deer Meat for Dinner for giving us the basics for this recipe.
