This recipe I’ve decided to share with you guys because I think it’s a great summer recipe that anybody can make at home. Here in Israel it is on our menu as Sashimi tuna serve the summer gazpacho. I decided to make the gazpacho using just yellow cherry tomatoes. Of course when making any gazpacho you can choose which ever tomatoes you see fit. Gazpacho is an amazing summer dish because it’s light And fresh. The dish is composed of gazpacho, tuna, fresh salad of green onion, cucumber, chili and fresh basil. What you see in the pictures is a finishing oil basil and chili oil. These flavors work very well together and even if you don’t want to use tuna and want to use a lighter white fish then of course you can switch it out. I wanted to share with you guys Another dish that is on the menu here at the restaurant so that even at home you can eat restaurant dishes without leaving the house. It’s really important to serve the gazpacho extremely cold. I think that’s what gives it it’s freshness.
The basil oil and the chili oil is an addition that obviously if you don’t have it in your house you don’t have to add it in but I do think it gives it a depth of flavor. Chili oil is extremely easy to make - you just infused chili flakes and fresh chili in olive oil and then set it aside to cool. Same thing with basil oil, it’s blended blanched basil with olive oil and then strained. I use amazing extra virgin olive oil in my recipes from Crete called “Sellia”. I recommend looking it up and purchasing for recipes like this which need a high quality but at the time light flavor.
