Tuna Poke With Daikon and Peanuts
Makes: 4 servings
1/3 cup peanuts, chopped
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 to 1-1/2 pounds fresh tuna, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
1/2 small daikon radish

2 teaspoons sesame oil

3. Squeeze the lemon juice into a small bowl and stir the mayonnaise, soy sauce, sesame oil, and sriracha to taste.
4. Pour the dressing over the tuna and sprinkle with the toasted peanuts and sesame seeds. Toss to combine, taste and adjust the seasoning, and serve. Stir in 1/4 cup chopped cilantro, if desired.
