Ropa Vieja Roll

Ropa Vieja Sushi Style Roll with Manduros and Avocado.  Drizzled with Chimichurri.   Simply amazing!

 Now this is what I call East meet the Caribbean.  One of the chefs came up with this great treat.  I definitely would love to create this one day.

I love making sauces  and of course love to twist things.  I made the chimichurri but this is going to be a little bit different.  Chimichurri is usually made with parsley, lemon juice, etc.  But with my love of bold flavors and exotic ingredients...I changed it up...enjoy!

GoRedChef Chimichurri: (Yields 2 Cups)

  •  4 bunches of fresh Cilantro (picked, using leaves only, chopped)
  • 6 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1 cup Olive Oil
  • 2 limes juiced and zested
  • 1 tsp red chili pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp of aji amarillo paste
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
 In a blender or food processor (your choice, perferabbly a good blender) combine all ingredients except olive oil.  Start blender on low, add the oil slowly.  Once the oil is added, increase speed and allow to puree to a smooth paste.  (make sure the blender doesn't get too hot).  Serve immediately or keep chilled.

This is what I created for the hot summer days!

What could be more refreshing than tropical fresh fruit salad with juicy black berries and chilled raspberry sorbet? 

This is Chef Michael Gilligans's baby!  His creation that is a total hit!
