  1. Dice the tuna as finely as possible, or put it through a meat grinder using the largest disk. Transfer to a small bowl and add the cilantro, shallot, ginger, oil, salt and pepper. Mix until the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Cover and refrigerate up to 2 hours.
  2. When ready to serve, mix the lime juice into the tuna. Divide the tuna between 4 small plates, mounding it in the center of the plates. Divide the onion, cucumbers, caper berries and toast points between the plates and serve immediately.
