  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 lemons

  1. Season diced tuna with salt/pepper to taste and set aside.
  2. Whisk olive oil, shallots, parsley, dijon mustard, lemon juice together. Add salt/pepper to taste.
  3. Add vinagrette to tuna and toss.
  4. The guacamole is your standard guac: mash up the avocados, add tomato and onion, and a little splash of lemon juice, and of course, salt/pepper to taste.
  5. Plating: Bottom layer is the guacamole with the tuna poke layered on top. Surround the entire mess with tortilla chips/fried wontons.
This is an easy, fast, great recipe that works for cocktail parties. I am not very good with actual measurements so here is a rough estimate. I mix and match to my individual taste. Serves 3-4 people as an appetizer. However, this is plenty as one small dish of many hors d'oeuvres at a cocktail party.
