1 red onion, peeled and sliced

4 tablespoons ketchup

1 jalapeno chile, seeded and chopped

Dash hot red pepper sauce

Salt and fresh ground black pepper

For the garnish:

1 vine ripe tomato, peeled, seeded, and uniformly small diced

20 small pieces sea beans, see Cook's Note, blanched in boiling water and refreshed in ice water

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
