  • 4 Persian cucumbers, peeled
  • 1/4 pound sushi-grade tuna, finely diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili sesame oil

  • Salt to taste
  • 1 small shallot, finely diced

  1. Slice cucumbers into 3/4-inch-thick rounds; use a small melon baller to scoop out some seeds to make a cup. Mix tuna, oils, Sriracha, and a generous pinch of salt; spoon into cups. Combine shallot and lime; sprinkle over tuna mixture. Serve immediately.
