Does anyone else miss South America? As travel to some parts of the world is still restricted due to closed borders, this perfect Tiradito recipe is something to tide you over if you are missing traveling to South America.

We’ve always brought the world into your home to you through our food recipes. This time, it’s the turn of Peru with this delicious Tiradito recipe. 

 

What is Tiradito?

Tiraditos hail from Peru. The capital of Peru, Lima, was (pre pandemic) one of the hottest food scenes in the world.

Tiraditos are a dish of raw fish and are the South American answer to Japanese sashimi. Unlike its Peruvian cuisine relative, Ceviche, Tiraditos are sliced and not cubed. They are also served raw and are not marinated. Peruvians have made this dish their own by adding spices, sauces and herbs that are distinctly South American. 

Our version of this Peruvian dish – made with salmon, sea scallop and sea bass – is created from the best Tiradito recipe. Plus it is quick and easy to make. The key to this Tiradito recipe is the fresh sushi grade fish, the sauce and the presentation.

Tiraditos are stunning, colorful dishes, and are the perfect meal for summer.

That Special (Ubah Hot) Sauce

We have a special treat for you as an add on for this Tiradito recipe. It also helps to simplify the preparation.

We always say at Galavante that if you can buy something better than you can make it, there’s no need to recreate the wheel.  

Our Tiradito recipe is made with Ubah Hot Sauce which is the creation of Supermodel Ubah Hassan.  She has created three varieties: Ruby (Fresno Mild), Emerald (Serrano Medium) and Yellow Tanzanite (Habanero Hot). Ubah’s approach is for their sauce to be THE sauce for everything, and we can confirm that it’s pretty amazing for Tiraditos.

Montauk Sea Bass Tiraditos

Ingredients

1/4 lb sushi-grade Montauk sea bass
Dash of black pepper and Maldon sea salt to taste
Olive oil for finishing
12 cilantro sprigs
Thinly sliced jalapeños

Ubah Hot Sauce: Ruby (Fresno Mild)

Note – keep the sea bass chilling in the refrigerator until ready to use

Directions

Spread the hot sauce on a white or solid-colored serving plate using a frosting spatula.  The sauce should be spread evenly and cover the main surface of the plate.

Remove the sea bass from the refrigerator. Thinly slice the sea bass in neat, uniform pieces. 

Gently lay each piece of sea bass in a circular pattern onto your hot sauce plate; it should resemble a starburst pattern. Make sure the fish filets are facing outward. 

Season with the Maldon Sea Salt and pepper to taste, and lightly drizzle with olive oil.  Add a cilantro leaf (or two) to the center of each fish filet. 

Thinly slice jalapeños into small rounds and use as garnish on top of the fish.  Serve immediately.
