Oil-Poached Mediterranean Tuna Salad, Culinary Institute Oceania Rivera, Chef Kelly

 

 

We just returned from a dream cruise to the Mediterranean where I prepared and sampled some of the best dishes I've ever eaten.  We cruised the Oceania, Rivera for 10 days. The Culinary Institute on board the ship is where you'd find me if I wasn't out exploring the sites.

 

Chef Kelly taught us 5 different ways to prepare fish, from poaching to pan-searing. I now know how to make the perfect scallop!

Once you've tasted tuna salad this way...you'll never go back to canned tuna!

Here is the recipe for:

Oil-Poached Mediterranean Tuna Salad

2 cups virgin olive oil, for cooking

2 cloves garlic, peeled and gently smashed

2 sprigs thyme

1 sprig rosemary

Pinch of red pepper flakes 

4 5-oz tuna steaks, room temperature

Salad 

1 Tbsp. champagne vinegar

1 tsp. Dijon mustard

2 Tbls. extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbls. minced shallot

1 1/2 cups canned artichoke hearts, quartered

1/4 cup Kalamata olives 

1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley

1 Tbls capers

1 lemon, zested and juiced

Kosher salt and ground white pepper

Poach the Tuna

In a large heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium, bring oil to 160 degrees. Infuse oil with the garlic, thyme, rosemary and red pepper flakes. Immerse the tuna in the oil to poach, spooning oil over the top of any uncovered fish, about 30 minutes. When the fish is white and cooked through, transfer the tuna to a glass baking dish and pour the oil on top. When room temperature, cover and refrigerate the fish overnight. Before making the salad, remove the tuna from oil and bring to room temperature. 

For the Salad

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the vinegar and mustard. Slowly pour in a stream of olive oil whisking constantly to make a creamy emulsion. Add the artichoke hearts, tomatoes, olives, parsley and capers and toss to lightly coat. Flake the fish into the salad. Finish with a generous amount of lemon zest and juice, and salt and pepper to taste.

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
