Directions

For the taco shells:

Cut the wonton skins using a 2-inch circle cutter. Use a taco shell basket and deep fry wontons until golden brown and firm. Remove taco shells from oil, allow to cool and season with sea salt.

For the Asian slaw:

Combine cabbage, peppers and onions in a medium sized mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, combine mayonnaise, 1 tablespoon rice vinegar, 1 tablespoon sugar, sesame oil, and sesame seeds. Mix well and combine with cabbage and peppers to marinate for about 1/2 hour.

For the plum sauce:

Preheat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once pan is hot, add vegetable oil, garlic, ginger, and star anise. Saute for about 45 seconds, or until garlic has started to cook. Add 1/4 cup rice vinegar, 1/4 cup sugar, and canned plums. Continue to saute until all ingredients are soft and set aside to cool. Once cooled, puree plum mixture in a vertical blender and reserve for taco assembly.

For the Tuna:

Cut tuna into logs about 1-inch by 1-inch by 4-inches. Coat liberally with pepper and a little salt. Heat a saute pan until very hot; add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and the sear tuna on all sides for about 15 seconds per side. Make sure to just sear outside of tuna and not allow inside to cook. Remove from heat and refrigerate promptly. Once cooled, slice into 1/8-inch thick slices.

For Taco Assembly:

Fill each taco shell with a little Asian slaw, place a slice of tuna on top of slaw, and then drizzle with a little plum sauce. Enjoy!
