Ahi Tostadas

How To Prepare Ahi Tostadas

🥑 First, make an “X” on some wonton wrapper so they don’t puff up. Then, spray some avocado oil and bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes.

🥬 Secondly, slice the leeks really thin, add to a pan and cover in avocado oil. Then, cook on high for 2 minutes and lower heat to medium low until golden. About 5-7 minutes. Let rest over a paper towel.

🍋 Then, mix together the mayo, ginger, Gochujang and a few drops of lime.

🐠 Slice the ahi real thin and marinate in the remaining lime, Tamari, sesame oil and rice vinegar for 2-3 minutes.

🥒 Lastly, spread the mayo on the tostadas, add some cucumber slices, ahi, avocado, sesame seeds, fried leeks and jalapeño slice. Serve with more lime.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can use any fish of your choice, such as salmon or scallops instead of ahi.
  2. You can use any pepper of your choice instead of jalapeño.
  3. You can adjust the amount of gochujang to your desired level of heat.
  4. You can use regular mayonnaise instead of Japanese mayo.
  5. You can use shallots or onions instead of leeks.
