Citrus gone wild

The list of ingredients from Alice Q Foodie from San Diego, writing for the Ah Ha Rancho Santa Fe News, is intriguing. The photo of the dish prepared is delightful and she writes about the Blue Ribbon Pizzaria: “local albacore crudo with buttery avocado, ruby red grapefruit and lemon olive oil, and the simple but perfectly balanced plate of creamy burrata with arugula tossed with lemon olive oil and crostini.”

We had to look up the word “crudo” and with the help of Wikipedia discovered the word  is Italian for raw fish, “dressed with olive oil, sea salt, and citrus juice such as lemon juice and sometimes vinegar.”

But CliffordAWright.com, described as a premier source for Mediterranean food, cooking and recipes, notes: “Crudo can refer to a mirepoix of vegetables and herbs and other ingredients that are added uncooked to a dish or sauce, and then cooked.”

Tuna and lime, tuna and lemon, are wonderful combinations, and we’re more than willing to give tuna and grapefruit a try!
