Method
  1. First, rehydrate the chilies by covering in boiling water for 2 minutes.
  2. To make the salsa de Arbol, fry the whole chillies in a splash of pomace oil. Fry the onions and garlic in a separate pan on a low temperature with the olive oil. Drain the oil out of both and set aside. Blend the chillies, onion and garlic until you have a chunky salsa. Mix with the salt and infused oils.
  3. Cut the tuna loin into 1cm cubes. In a bowl, mix the tuna, sesame seeds, soy sauce, and salsa de Arbol. Spread a thin layer of guacamole onto each tostada, add a mound of the tuna mixture, and garnish with coriander. Serve immediately.
