Drain. Set aside.

In a separate pan, dry roast both sesame seeds till golden brown and fragrant. Set aside.

Preparing the salad:

Finely shred carrots, daikon, green papaya using a Japanese spiral mandoline or a food processor. Set aside, separately.

Julienne scallions into 2-inch long. Soak in cold water 10 minutes, then drain.

Slice pickled shallots and pickled ginger finely.

Remove tough stems from cilantro leaves.

Remove skin and membranes from pomelo to obtain the fruit sac.

Arrange all vegetables on a large platter in a circle, taking care to alternate colors.

Slice the ahi tuna and place in the middle of the platter.

Preparing the dressing:

In a separate bowl, whisk together plum sauce, lime juice and oil.

To serve:

Immediately prior to serving, drizzle the salad dressing over the vegetables.

Give everyone around the table a pair of chopsticks and have everyone participate in the tossing for good luck.
