This recipe is all about spring and freshness. The spring is when all the flowers and plants are taking off. Whether in Austin or Malibu Nasturtiums can thrive, but because I was out west for this recipe there is a few different patches where the nasturtiums have really taking over. If you have never had nasturtium before they are beautiful herbaceous flower that grow like weeds and can take over an entire area.
They have a distinct peppery flavor and can be used as a vehicle to combine with other ingredients to make a great recipes. In this case I left them raw and simply stuffed them with raw kampachi tartare or poke. The combination of the raw fatty kampachi with the peppery flowers where not only appealing to the eye but also to the taste. Here is the recipe I hope you enjoy it!
