Nori Spiced Tuna Poke Crips Recipe
For Wonton Crips:
For Avocado Puree:
Active time: 25 minutes
Total time: 30 minutes
To fry wontons: Line a large baking sheet with paper towels. Pour enough oil into a large deep skillet to come about 1/2" up the sides and heat on high until oil is very hot and shimmering. In batches, add wonton triangles and cook, turning once, until golden brown. Using a wire spider or a slotted spoon, transfer to baking sheet to drain and cool. Crisps can be stored at room temperature for up to 8 hours.
To make poke: In a medium bowl, mix tuna, soy sauce, cilantro, sesame oil, scallion, sambal oelek, and furikake. Poke can be refrigerated, covered, for up to 8 hours.
To make avocado puree: Process avocado and lime juice in a blender, occasionally stopping to scrape down sides, adding enough water to make a smooth puree. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a food-safe plastic squeeze bottle.
To serve, arrange wonton triangles on a platter. Top each with a spoonful of poke, squeeze avocado puree over top, and sprinkle with crushed wasabi peas and radish shreds. Serve immediately with lime wedges.
