Recipe Instructions

Make the vinaigrette: In a bowl, whisk together lemon juice, pink pepper, white pepper, and salt. Whisk in honey. Drizzle in olive oil in a slow stream to emulsify. This is a temporary emulsification and needs to be whisked just before serving.

In a heated pan with olive oil saute the potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Cover the pan and roast until potatoes are tender. Add sun-dried tomatoes to the pan. Transfer mixture to a bowl. With a hand-held masher, mash the mixture until fluffy. Check for seasoning. Place the potatoes mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a round tip.

To hydrate the rice paper wrappers, fill a large bowl with warm water. Place the wrappers in water for about 3 minutes until soft.

Remove one wrapper at a time from the water, lay out on a flat surface, and blot with a paper towel. Pipe a 5-inch strip of mashed potatoes in the center of the wrapper. Lay a tuna bar and a piece of scallion evenly next to the potato. Roll into a spring roll.

In a very hot pan with oil saute the spring rolls quickly, browning all sides. Cook on very high heat, making sure not to cook the tuna.

Cut each spring roll into 5 pieces. Brush with olive oil. Drizzle with the vinaigrette and serve immediately.

This recipe yields 20 pieces.
