I especially like these as an amuse bouche when prepared as a wonton cup...they're really cute and easy to eat. Also, a mixture of black and white sesame seeds is nice.

Ahi Tuna Tartar on Sesame Wonton Crisps (or in Wonton Cups)

Recipe courtesy MSNBC Interactive and NBC's "Today Show".
Serves 24

Sesame Wonton Crisps
12 wonton wrappers (can substitute egg roll wrappers)
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons sesame seeds

Tuna Tartar
6 ounces sushi-grade tuna, cut into 1/4-inch dice
2 tablespoons green onions, green parts only, finely chopped
2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon peeled and grated fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 teaspoon orange zest
2 tablespoons cilantro, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 avocado, cut into 1/4-inch dice
2 teaspoons lime juice
Cilantro sprigs for garnish

Sesame Wonton Crisps: Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the wonton squares on an angle to make two triangles. Arrange the wonton triangles on the baking sheet. Spray (lightly) with olive oil on one side (or brush lightly). Sprinkle lightly with sesame seeds. Bake until golden, about 6 minutes. (Can burn easily so watch carefully). Let cool. (Alternatively, if you want cups, put the oiled whole wrappers in mini muffin tins -- no need to use the sesame seeds when making the cups). Remove triangles from the pan and let cook on a cooling rack.

Tuna Tartar: Mix tuna, green onions, sesame seeds, soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, orange zest, cilantro and salt together in a medium bowl. Mix well.

Assembly: Right before ready to serve, add the avocado and lime juice. (Do not mix in advance.) Place a heaping teaspoon of the tuna mixture on each wonton triangle. Garnish with a sprig of cilantro. Serve immediately. It is important that the tuna is not left at room temperature for more than 1 hour.
