Got 10 minutes? That's all you need to make Tuna Sashimi and Avocado Wonton Cups. Perfect for parties and impromptu get togethers.
  • 12 square wonton wrappers
  • vegetable spray
  • ¼ cup good quality mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 2 avocados, pitted
  • 1 Serrano or jalapeno, seeded, deveined, and minced
  • ⅓ cup red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • ½ - ¾ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • pinch of freshly ground black pepper
  • 7 ounces sushi-grade tuna
  • 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds (white is ok too)
  • 2 scallions, green parts only, thinly sliced
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray each cup of the muffin tin with the cooking spray. Gently press a wonton wrapper into each cup so that the wrapper takes its shape. Lightly spray the wonton wrappers with the vegetable spray and bake for 8 - 10 minutes, or until crispy and golden-brown.
  2. While the wonton cups are baking, mix the mayonnaise and Sriracha in a small bowl to make the quick Sriracha aioli. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, mash the avocados with a fork. Stir in the Serrano, red onion, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Slice the tuna ¼-inch thick, against the grain.
  5. Once the wonton cups have baked, remove and allow to cool. Once cooled to room temp, place a dollop of the avocado mixture in each cup. Top with two slices of tuna, drizzle with the Sriracha aioli, and garnish with the sesame seeds and scallions. Serve and enjoy!
* The wonton cups can be baked the day before and stored in an air-tight container.
* If you're making these for a party - assemble just before serving. They will hold up for about an hour in the fridge, but if prepared too early the bottom of the wontons will become soggy.
* For a pretty application of the Sriracha-mayo, I used a squeeze bottle.
