Ingredients

Serves 2-4 (depending on size)

  • ½ pound of fresh sushi-grade tuna, diced in small cubes
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced in small cubes
  • ½ ripe mango, diced in small cubes
  • Finely sliced spring onions
  • Black sesame seeds
  • 1 lime

Dressing

  • 1 ½ tsp wasabi powder / fresh wasabi (add a little chilli if you don’t have this)
  •  ½ tbs hot water
  • 1 ½ tbsp honey
  •  2 tbsp light soy sauce
  •  1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • A pinch of freshly cracked pepper

Method

  1. Whisk together the wasabi and water, then add the remaining dressing ingredients and set aside – taste to check balance.
  2. Toss the avocado with ½ squeeze of lime and season with salt and pepper
  3. Coat your chopped tuna in the dressing, enough to coat it but not over power it.
  4. Place a deep serving ring in the centre of a dish and layer the avocado, mango, then tuna on top. 
  5. Press down well then remove the serving ring.
  6. Top with sesame seeds and spring onion – you could top it instead with crunchy fried onion. If you wish, drizzle a little extra dressing on the plate before service.
