Preparation Instructions

Wash hands. Wash all fresh, unpackaged produce under running water. Drain well. 1] Thinly slice 6 oz. of fingerling potatoes lengthwise on a mandoline.

To prepare à la carte:

1] Place ice in a large stainless-steel mixing bowl. Place another smaller stainless-steel bowl in the larger bowl on top of the ice. 2] Take a 4-oz. piece of tuna and pat it dry with paper toweling. Dice into ¼" pieces. Place in the chilled stainless-steel bowl sitting in the ice. Add 1 Tbsp. each of poke sauce and green onions and ½ tsp. of peanut oil to the tuna. Mix together with a rubber spatula. 3] Spread ¼ oz. of arugula out on a chilled serving plate. Place the poke on top of the arugula. Place ¼ oz. of fried fingerling potatoes in the poke lengthwise. Sprinkle 1 tsp. of granulated peanuts and ¼ tsp. each of white and black sesame seeds and 1⁄8 tsp. of crushed red pepper on top of the poke. Place a lime wedge on the plate next to the poke.
