Healthy Recipe #2: Tuna and Avocado Sashimi

This recipe is delicious!  I based it off something I ate at a fancy restaurant in Asheville a couple months ago.  The preparation is simple, and should take no more than 10-15 minutes (basically chopping avocado and slicing tuna).  And the end result is well worth the hefty price tag for sashimi grade tuna ($10.99/pound).

Shopping list:

Kimchi, light sesame ginger vinaigrette, avocado, black sesame seeds, regular sesame seeds, and carrots (you can also include a little bit of sushi rice, but keep portion size in mind).

Preparation:

  • Slice up your avocado in small pieces (size of your pinky finger nail)
  • Shave your carrots into thin inch-or-two long strips
  • Cut your tuna last (make the pieces just a bit bigger than the avocado slices)
  • Plate the avocado, carrots, and tuna.   Also plate (to the side) a couple tablespoons of Kimchi
  • Drizzle the plate in 2-3 tablespoons of the sesame ginger vinaigrette
  • Sprinkle white and black sesame seeds over the plate (I use about 2 teaspoons of each type)

Enjoy.
