Salvador Seared Tuna
It took me about three years to get a meeting with Eric Ripert to talk to him about spices. What was supposed to be a quick introduction turned into an hour-long conversation, and our ongoing relationship has been one of my most rewarding. Eric and his team constantly challenge me to find the best ingredients possible. Here, Eric shows off his seafood skills by creating a very simple dish that tastes complex and layered thanks to the smoked paprika and seafood essence in the Salvador N.19 spice blend.
