These lovely and light appetizers, created by Chef Lela, taste just like Spring in a bite with their fresh flavors and delicious umami.
  • 1 Large ahi steak (the best grade A "sashimi grade" you can find.)
  • 1 Ripe avocado
  • Black sesame crackers (available at any Asian market)
  • 1 cup Vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp Togarashi (Japanese spice blend)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsps Shoyu
  • 1 tsp Plus one dash Sesame oil
  • 1 tsp Grated ginger
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 2 Spring onions, minced
  • 1 tbsp Finely chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup Japanese Mayo
  • 1 tsp Sriracha (more if you like it hot!)

Peel the avocado and give it a rough "smash".  Make the crackers: Heat up the vegetable oil, break the crackers apart. Test one piece into the hot oil (it should puff up instantly as it fries). Put on a paper towel to drain. Dust with Togarashi and salt. Make the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the shoyu, sesame oil, ginger, lime juice and zest, onions, cilantro. Cut up the ahi into a small dice and then toss with the dressing. In a small bowl, whisk the mayo, sriracha and dash of sesame oil. To assemble: Take a cracker, spread the avocado "smash", then Poke mixture, then a bit of sriracha mayo. Garnish with green onion.

Add-ins: You can add... microgreens, mango, furikake, sweet soy drizzle or keep it plain! It's all about that tuna and those incredible gluten-free crackers!
