Ahi Tuna Tartare on Baked Wonton Crisps with Tofu Soup and Salad with Ginger Dressing

Standard

I made this as a meal, although the tuna tartare would be a great appetizer for a party!

Prep: 15-20min

Cook Time: (Soup) 20 min

Serves: 3

Ingredients:

  • 2 Sashimi grade tuna steaks (.3-.4 lbs each) (small cubes)
  • 1 Avocado (small cubes)
  • 2-3 TBS cilantro, chopped finely
  • 2 TBS green onion, just greens, slice finely
  • 2 TBS sesame seeds (I do one TBS toasted and one I leave regular for a nice contrast).
  • 1 tsp Sesame oil
  • 2 TBS soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Grated ginger
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • Cilantro for garnish

Wonton Crisps

  • Wonton wrappers (9-10)
  • Olive oil spray
  • Sesame seeds for wontons

Tofu Soup

  • 1 container of organic chicken stock, 32 oz
  • 1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms (I use regular because I was out).
  • 1/2 a block of soft tofu, silken, cubed
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1/8 cup scallions
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

Tuna Tartare:

Mix tuna, green onions, sesame seeds, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, orange zest, cilantro and salt together in a medium bowl. Mix well.  Set back in the fridge.

When ready to serve add lime juice and avocado and mix gently.

Tofu Soup:

Mix all ingredients and cook for 20 min.

Wonton Crisps:

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees, lay 10 wontons on a foil or parchment paper tray (spray foil first), spray tops of wonton and sprinkle with sesame seeds – cook until golden brown and crispy (about 7 min for me with gas).  Watch em’ carefully!

Plating:  Place Tuna Tartare on top of wonton crisps, top tartare with a spring of cilantro and serve with tofu soup and your choice of a salad with ginger or sesame dressing.  This is an easy and healthy dish that so refreshing!

Pair with a Japanese beer or Sake.
