A Polynesian favorite, ahi tuna poke makes a great starter, especially when served with crispy Furikake Wonton Crisps. To keep the poke cold, chill the serving dish ahead of time and nestle it in a larger bowl filled with ice to serve.

What to buy: Togarashi powder, a Japanese mixture of spices that always contains chiles, can be found in ethnic markets. (It may also be labeled shichimi togarashi.) Or you can make your own.

  3. 3Add cucumber, scallions, 2 tablespoons of the lime juice, soy sauce, 3 teaspoons of the sesame seeds, ginger, and sesame oil and stir gently to combine. Season with salt, togarashi or pepper, and remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice as desired.
  4. 4Transfer to the chilled serving dish and sprinkle with the remaining 1 teaspoon sesame seeds. Serve immediately with wonton crisps.
