  • Soy, Sesame, Fish (Tuna)
  • Ingredients

    Crispy Wonton Chips
    Wonton Wrappers 10 .
    Wesson Canola Oil (for frying) 2 cups (approx).
    Kosher Salt 1/8 tsp.
    Tuna Tartare
    Ahi Tuna, fresh or frozen (sushi grade) 6 oz, 1/3" dice.
    Wesson Basics Mayonnaise 1 tbsp.
    Light Soy Sauce 1 1/2 tsp.
    Ginger, minced 1 tsp.
    Lime Juice 1/2 lime.
    Green Onion, sliced thin 1 tbsp.
    Sesame Seeds, toasted 1/2 tsp.
    Avocado (small-medium, chunked) 1 .
    Lemon Juice (for avocado) 1 tbsp.
    Wesson Basics Mayonnaise (yield 2 cups)
    Egg Yolks 3 .
    Dijon Mustard 2 tsp.
    White Wine Vinegar 1 tbsp.
    Salt, table 1/2 tsp.
    Water 1 tbsp.
    Wesson Canola Oil 2 cups.


    For the Mayonnaise

    In a food processor, combine all ingredients except for the oil.

    Slowly drizzle in Wesson Canola Oil, blending after each addition. The mayonnaise will be thin at first but slowly thicken as more oil is added. It is important to add the oil slowly or the emulsion may break.

    Store in the fridge for up to one week.

    For the Wonton Chips

    In a medium-large sized pan, add 2 cups Wesson Canola Oil (about 2 inches deep in your chosen pan) and heat to 275°F-350°F for a shallow fry. Once heated, place wonton wrappers into the oil and cook for 8 seconds per side. The wontons should be crispy and golden brown.

    Remove wonton chips from oil and place on a paper towel-lined baking sheet to remove excess oil. Sprinkle with salt and let cool. Repeat the process until the desired amount of wonton wrappers have been fried.

    Tip: Do not overcrowd your pan when frying.

    For the Tuna Tartare

    Combine mayonnaise, soy sauce, ginger, green onion, and lime juice in a small bowl. Add diced tuna and gently mix together.

    Tip: cutting thawed tuna can be difficult, thaw your tuna in the fridge and cut it while it’s still slightly frozen. Taste your tuna mixture and season with additional lime juice or soy sauce to taste.

    Tip: if you like some spice in your life try adding some Wesson Chili Crisp or a diced hot chili.

    Assembly Method
    Dice one small-medium avocado into ¼” – ½” pieces and drizzle with lemon juice to prevent browning. Arrange  avocado into a round nest on serving plate by hand or using a ring mold. Spoon tuna mixture on top of avocado. Garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions and serve with wonton chips. Tip: Tuna is best served fresh but can be made a couple hours in advance and stored in the fridge. Tip: Use a bowl to form round shape if you do not have a ring mold. Simply place the tuna in first, topping with avocado and flip the bowl upside down onto a plate – the avocado will now be on the bottom and tuna on top. Tip: Wonton chips stay fresh for up to 3 days when stored in an airtight container.
