We are sushi fanatics! Most Wednesday nights you can find us sitting at the sushi bar of our local Japanese restaurant. We have been there so many times, that we don’t need to tell them our order. The waiter knows our drink order, and that I want a salad. As for sushi, anything goes. We ask Henri, the sushi chef, to make whatever he wants for us. He is so inventive and loves to mix flavors. Our daughter even has two sushi rolls named after her. One of my new favorites, that Henri makes, is chunks of tuna with avocado and mango tossed in a special spicy sauce and placed in the cutest cucumber cup. Yes, he cuts a cucumber to look like a cup with spiky sides. It was that particular dish that inspired this appetizer.

We were going over to a friend’s for dinner, and I was bringing the appetizers. One of the dishes had to be a cheese plate. We are all cheese fiends. There is just no denying our love for the magnificence of cheese. I spied some good quality tuna at the grocery store, so I decided to be my own sushi chef. What fun! It reminded me of the sushi class we took on a cruise over the summer. It was a blast, and we ate so much sushi. With that little bit of experience, I felt like a professional. I diced my tuna and avocado into bite sized pieces, added a little cucumber for crunch and felt like I was a total pro. Then I whipped up a sauce. I was giddy with anticipation. I took a little taste and “Yuck”! It was horrible. I tried adding a few drops of this and that, and it just got worse. Ugh! So maybe I am not an expert sushi chef after all. My hopes were momentarily dashed. I threw out the sauce and tried it again.  This time the sauce was delicious.  Hallelujah!

Instead of making sushi rolls, I stuffed endive leaves. I knew they would appreciate that this appetizer was low carb and low calorie. The cheese certainly isn’t. These little appetizers are divine. They look spectacular but are so simple to make. Our daughter even devoured them. She is a young sushi lover anyway. Since ahi tuna is quite pricey, Asian Tuna and Avocado Stuffed Endive Leaves are perfect for a special occasion like New Years. Bringing in the New Year is the perfect time for a little splurge. Raise a glass, say a toast to the ones you love and enjoy these delectable bites.
