Ingredients

  • 1 6 - 8 - ounce fresh or frozen ahi tuna steak, cut 1-inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil, optional
  • 1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon black or white sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fried Wonton Chips (see recipe)
  • 2 cups fresh baby greens
  • Wasabi Aioli (see recipe)
  • 1 tablespoon pickled sushi ginger, cut into thin strips (optional)

Directions

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Cut fish into 1-inch cubes. If you like, coat cubes with sesame oil. In a shallow dish, combine white and black sesame seeds. Roll fish cubes in sesame seed mixture.
