Slice the Red Snapper as thin as possible and lay out in one layer on a clean tray or plate.
Season with salt, pepper, lemon juice, olive oil. Julienne the basil and fine as possible and scatter over the Ceviche. Refrigerate. The Tuna and Ceviche should be marinaded for about twenty minutes.

Make 16 parcels (assuming you are making this dish for four people) from the sliced snapper ceviche and fill with the cold tomato fondant.

Distribute the Aubergine Puree on plates in the form of a five, actually called a ‘quincunx’. Place a square of marinaded Tuna on each one. Arrange the Ceviche parcels in the four spaces between.

Roll the asparagus spears in the left over lemon/olive mix from the ceviche, or a classic vinaigrette and arrange on top of the tuna/ceviche.

Be really careful about the freshness and the storage of the fish as it’s being eaten raw
