Preheat the oven to 425°F (to bake wontons). Start prepping when the oven comes up to temperature! Wash and dry all produce.* In a medium pot, add 2 1/2 cups water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, zest, then juice half the lime. Cut remaining lime into wedges. Thinly slice green onions. Peel, then finely grate 1 tbsp ginger. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Add rice to boiling water. Reduce heat to low. Cook, still covered, until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 12-14 min.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together sesame oil, plum sauce, lime juice, 1/4 cup water, 1/4 tsp garlic and 1/4 tsp ginger. In a large bowl, add cabbage mix, lime zest, green onions and half the plum sauce mixture from the small bowl. Toss to combine. Set aside. (NOTE: Also, set aside the small bowl with remaining plum mixture.)
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add sesame seeds to the dry pan. Toast, stirring often, until fragrant and warm, 3-4 min. (TIP: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!) Remove the pan from heat, then transfer sesame seeds to a plate. In the large bowl with slaw, sprinkle over half the sesame seeds. Toss together and set aside.
Cut wonton wrappers into triangles. Brush a parchment-lined baking sheet with 1/2 tbsp oil. Arrange wonton triangles, then brush another 1/2 tbsp oil over the top side. Sprinkle with salt. Bake in the middle of oven, until wontons are golden-brown and crispy, 4-5 min. (NOTE: Keep your eye on them so they don't burn!)
Meanwhile, heat the same pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add another 1 tbsp oil, then pork. Cook, breaking up pork into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min. (TIP: Cook to a minimum internal temp. of 71°C/160°F.**) Add hoisin sauce, remaining garlic and remaining ginger. Stir together, until fragrant, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper.
Fluff rice with a fork then season with salt. Divide rice between bowls. Top with pork, slaw and wontons. Sprinkle over remaining sesame seeds. Drizzle over remaining plum mixture from the small bowl. Squeeze over a lime wedge, if desired.
