The instruction how to make Tuna tartare with pickled cucumber

  1. Combine cucumber, vinegar, ginger, sugar, wasabi and 1 teaspoon salt and toss to combine. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine 1 tablespoon each of black and white sesame seeds on a plate. Lightly brush one side of each wonton wrapper with water, then press into seeds to coat.
  3. Half-fill a large pan or wok with oil and heat to 180u00b0C (a cube of bread will turn golden in 30 seconds). Carefully lower each wonton wrapper, seed-side down, into the oil and cook for 15 seconds until crisp and golden. Remove with a slotted spoon, drain on paper towel and set aside. Repeat with remaining wonton wrappers.
  4. Toast remaining seeds in a dry frypan over medium heat for 1-2 minutes. Cool.
  5. Drain excess liquid from the cucumbers, reserving 1/4 cup (60ml). Toss cucumber with tuna, radish and reserved liquid.
  6. Place 8cm ring mould on a plate and fill with a quarter of the tuna mixture, gently pressing down. Remove mould and repeat.
  7. Break wontons into shards and arrange on top of tuna. Scatter with herbs and toasted seeds. Drizzle with oil and serve.
