Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded Napa cabbage
  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage
  • 1 cup green beans, trimmed and thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped pickled ginger
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Wonton Strips:
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 6 square wonton sheets, cut into 1/8-inch wide strips
Dressing:
  • 2 tablespoons ginger, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons green onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 pound sashimi-grade ahi tuna
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the cabbages, green beans, red bell pepper, pickled ginger, and cilantro. Cover and refrigerate.

In a small saucepan heat the canola oil to 325 degrees F and carefully fry the wonton strips for 3 to 4 seconds, until golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the strips to a paper towel to drain. Set aside.

For the dressing:

In a blender or food processor, blend together the ginger, green onion, garlic, and cilantro.

For the Tuna:

Coat the tuna with the oil and season with the salt and pepper. On a plate scatter the sesame seeds and press the tuna into the seeds on both sides, gently shaking off the excess.

Heat a large grill or saute pan over high heat and sear the tuna for 3 minutes on each side. Remove the fish from the pan and let rest for several minutes before slicing. The tuna will be medium-rare.

Toss the vegetables with half of the dressing and mix well. Add half of the wonton strips and gently combine. Mound the slaw onto a platter or indivisual plates. Place the sliced tuna on top of the salad and drizzle the remaining dressing on top. Garnish with the remaining wonton strips.
