WITH HEARTS OF PALM SLAW AND JALAPEÑO-CUCUMBER GAZPACHO
This variant makes the bait swim beneath the surface. Add an egg sinker under the chin, split the bill with a knife, then pull the leader up through the split. Wrap the rigging wire around the base of the bill, then twice in front of the leader, and wrap back and finish behind the leader. This creates a diving lip, which with the chin weight, keeps the bait subsurface.
Light and simple to prepare, this dish comes together quickly. For the hearts of palm slaw, it’s best to use a mandoline, which shaves the veggies perfectly with little effort. Break out the blender for the gazpacho, then finish up by grilling the yellowfin tuna and serving it at it’s best: lightly seared on one side. And remember, with this combination of classic flavors and textures, less is more.
