Sugar Snap and Radish Salad with Olive-Oil Tuna
This recipe inspired by chef Joshua McFadden, of Portland, Oregon's Ava Gene's, plays fast and loose with convention. Northern Italian tonnato, a silky, savory sauce made with tuna, typically is served with veal. But we like to balance the puree's rich, meaty flavor with sweet snap peas and peppery radishes; flaked tuna tops off the salad. Asian fish sauce may be a surprise ingredient, but just a couple teaspoons of it bolsters the flavor of the tuna.
Kosher salt and ground white pepper
pound sugar snap peas, trimmed and strings removed
01Fill a large bowl with ice water. In a large saucepan, bring 2 quarts water to a boil. Stir in 2 tablespoons salt and the snap peas. Cook until bright green and crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain, then immediately transfer to the ice water. Let stand until completely cooled, about 2 minutes, then drain again. Slice half the peas in half on the bias, then set aside.
