Cooking Steps

  1. Chop tuna very finely and place in a medium bowl. Add 1/3 cup of the vinegar, the soy sauce, sesame oil, scallion, shallot, salt, and pepper; mix well.
  2. Place a 2 inch metal ring mold in the center of a serving dish. Fill ring with 1/4 of tuna mixture and pat with spoon to make it firm. Carefully remove ring from around tuna mixture. Repeat to make 3 more servings
  3. Arrange avocado around the sides of tuna molds. Top tuna with chives and pickled ginger. Drizzle with chili oil and the remaining 2 teaspoons vinegar.
  4. If desired, serve tuna tartare with toasted wonton wrappers. To toast wonton wrappers, brush them with additional sesame oil and bake in a 325°F oven until slightly browned.
  5. Note: When buying tuna, don't buy tuna that has been stored directly on ice. This will bleed out the color.
