Ingredients

Smoked Caper Vinaigrette:
  • 3 tablespoons coarse salt
  • 4 ounces capers, drained 
  • 1 cup rice vinegar 
  • 1/2 cup olive oil 
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard 
  • 2 teaspoons agave syrup 
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar 
Tuna:
  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh tuna
  • Herbes de Provence
  • Olive oil
Grilled Fingering Potatoes:
  • 1 pound heirloom fingerling potatoes
  • Olive oil 
Asparagus Salad:
  • 2 radishes, shaved
  • 1 bulb fennel, shaved 
  • 1 bunch asparagus, tips only, blanched
  • 8 ounces arugula
  • 4 to 6 quail eggs, hard-boiled,

Directions

For the vinaigrette: Place the salt in a zip-lock back. Fill the bag with smoke using a Smoking Gun filled with hickory chips. Seal and set aside for 20 minutes or longer. Repeat for the capers.

In a blender, combine the smoked capers and 1 tablespoon of the smoked salt. Add the rice vinegar, olive oil, mustard, agave and brown sugar. Blend until smooth.

For the tuna: Cut the tuna into 6-ounce portions. Roll on all sides in herbes de Provence. Heat a saute pan over high heat; coat with olive oil. Add the tuna and sear on all sides, 30 to 45 seconds side, leaving the center raw.

For the potatoes: Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Toss the fingerling potatoes with the remaining 2 tablespoons smoked salt and some olive oil. Add to the pan and grill until fully cooked.

For the asparagus salad: Toss the shaved radish and fennel in a bowl with the asparagus and arugula. Dress with vinaigrette. Top with the quail eggs.

To plate: Place some grilled potatoes on each plate. Spoon some of the asparagus salad over the potatoes. Cut the tuna into slices and arrange on top of the salad. Serve.
