From Executive Chef Guillermo Carmona of the Velas Vallarta Resort in Mexico, a recipe for Smoked Marlin “La Tia” featuring marlin, sautéed in onion, garlic, tomato, cilantro and olive oil, served with aguachile soy sauce.

Ingredients

Marlin

  • 5 ounces Smoked Marlin (may substitute fresh yellowfin tuna)
  • 4 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 tablespoons tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cilantro, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons cucumber, in strips
  • To taste Salt and pepper

Aguachile Soy Sauce

  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 4 teaspoons water
  • Squid ink (can be purchased in the International Foods section of larger grocery retailers, also at Walmart or Amazon online.

Preparation

  • 1 Sauté the marlin in onion, garlic, tomato, cilantro and olive oil. Since the marlin is already smoked we recommend sauteéing for a short period of time, starting with the vegetables and at the very end adding the fish.
  • 2 Remove and chill. The cooling process, depending on the amount, should not take more than 30 minutes in the fridge.
  • 3 Make a thin belt of cucumber in a circle. Place the chilled marlin in the center.
  • 4 For the aguachile, mix all the ingredients by hand, then add the sauce on the side.
