Recipe Type: Garnishes, chili pepper,
Total Time: 15 min Prep Time: 15 min Yield: 1 garnish
1 Serrano Chili Pepper
2 Celery leaves
2 strawberries with hulls
Purchase Serrano chili peppers with long stems slightly off center to resemble a hummingbird beak and body. Cut two small lengthwise slits on the top side of the pepper about 3/4-inch from the stem end then insert celery leaves for the wings.
Make a strawberry flower and set on a serving plate. Take the remaining strawberry and cut the top straight across including some flesh of the strawberry, place hull side down next to the flower you just made; put the pepper on the cut strawberry top (see my photograph), stick the Serrano stem into the strawberry flower to resemble a hummingbird that is feeding.
