Puttin' on the Ritz

Good Bite

BY AVIEL KANTER SRQ DAILY FRIDAY WEEKEND EDITION FRIDAY APR 7, 2017

Seared tuna, watermelon and quinoa aren’t new inventions. In fact, sometimes, each ingredient alone can often be overlooked. However, the chefs at Jack Dusty pair the three with panache and flare, creating a dish that is deserving of fanfare. The thick slab of Ahi tuna gets seared to perfection—seasoned and almost crispy on the outside with tender, melt-in-your-mouth red meat within. It sits atop a bed of lightly charred and warmed juicy watermelon and rice-wine infused chilly multi-colored quinoa. When all three ingredients enter the mouth in one bite, the mix is all at once earthy, sweet and succulent, a delightful combination of warmed and chilled, sugar and spice.

Jack Dusty at the Ritz-Carlton, 1111 Ritz Carlton Dr., Sarasota, 941-309-2266.
