Awesome, Award-Worthy Appetizer

I know I've completely bombarded you with fabulous recipes that Wolfgang Puck will be making at the Governors Ball and I apologize for tempting you with so much deliciousness. At least I'm not waving the food around in front of you and then quickly pulling it away before you can get any. I am posting the recipes for each of these edible masterpieces so you can make them in the comfort of your own home, while you gossip about what Reese and Cameron are wearing. You can add this one to the must-make-list: a tasty tapa recipe that will be passed on trays while the stars are arriving at the after party. The recipe is a little complicated, but worth the effort and time. To make spicy tuna tartare in a sesame miso cone as an appetizer at your next star-worthy event,

Spicy Tuna Tartare In A Sesame Miso Cone
From Wolfgang Puck

For the tuna tartare
1/2 pound ahi tuna, small dice
1/2 cup minced green onions
1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoon wasabi paste
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
Lime juice or yuzu
For the miso cones
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup unsifted unbleached flour

  1. In a bowl, combine the tuna, green onions, ginger, wasabi, sesame oil, soy sauce and lime juice, and mix until well blended.
  2. Taste and adjust seasoning with lime juice or soy sauce. Set bowl over ice.
  3. Next, prepare the miso cones: in a mixing bowl, combine all of the ingredients, mixing until butter is combined.
  4. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop miso cone batter by one small level spoonful onto lined baking sheet, spacing them apart because they will spread during baking. Bake for about 4 minutes, or until golden brown. Keep an eye on them; they burn quickly.
  6. Remove from oven and roll into cone shapes, being careful not to burn your fingers.
  7. Place a generous spoonful of tuna mix into each cone.
  8. Repeat process until you have enough to arrange on a serving platter. Serve immediately.

Makes 24 pieces.

I have had the privilege of eating these tuna appetizers many times, as my sister producers the Governors Ball. They are time consuming but worth every second of preparation. Buy a professional solid cone to help you shape them into cones

I really want to try this, but I just don't know how confident I can be that the tuna will be FRESH, you know? Maybe I'll ask my friendly local sushi man...
