It is a dish that can be offered as an entree or main dish. It is a kind of tower in layers, inspired by a European dish, called "herring dressed". In this case I used tuna with juice and lemon zest, to enhance its flavor, and the sweet touch of mango and chives to harmonize the flavors.

¡Contrastante! Hubiese preferido sabores más tropicales, sin embargo esa explosión contrastante debe estar para paladares acostumbrados. Lo bueno es que hace énfasis en la receta rusa original. Me animaré a a prepararlo :)
