Ingredients
  

  • 2 large sashimi grade Ahi tuna steaks (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 shallot (finely chopped)
  • 1 cup toasted coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

Instructions
 

  • Rinse and pat dry your tuna steak. Cut it into small 1/2 inch cubes and place in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the shallots, coconut, chopped green onion, soy sauce, sesame oil, chili garlic sauce, and sesame seeds and toss.
  • Cover with saran wrap (plastic) and refrigerate.
  • In a small frying pan set olive oil to heat at medium. Grab a gyoza paper and slowly drop in in the oil to brown each side, flipping often to evenly cook and not burn. Remove them from the oil and place them on a paper towel to pick up the excess oil.
  • Carefully slice your habanero chiles. Plate your tostada with a spoonful of deliciousness and set on top of your volcano roll a sliver of habanero heat. Trust me its the perfect balance you wont be upset. Sprinkle some sesame seeds and enjoy!
