  1. In a medium bowl, combine the tuna, cucumber, avocado, green onion, red pepper flakes and sesame seeds. Pour in the lemon juice, sesame oil and soy sauce, and stir carefully to blend so as not to mash the avocado. Place this bowl into a larger bowl that has been filled with ice. Chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, but no longer - the terrific freshness of the fish will be lost.
  2. Once chilled, remove the bowl from the ice, and invert onto a serving plate. Serve with toasted bread or your favorite crackers.

Footnotes

  • To toast sesame seeds
  • Heat a dry skillet over medium heat. Add sesame seeds, and cook until toasted and fragrant, about 3 minutes. Stir often to prevent burning.

This dish was extremely salty, my husband and I could not even finish the dish. I would cut the soy sauce to 1/4 cup, if that.

This was delicious the way I ended up making it. I don't care for avocado at all, so I substituted diced mango. It came out very tasty.

This was a big hit at my dinner party. Great with sesame crackers - I would suggest easy on the soy as well and I also grated some fresh ginger and cilantro on it - was yummy!

If you love ahi and avocado, you will LOVE this dish as much as I do! Made it exactly as the recipe called for - couldn't think of a SINGLE improvement on the recipe - FABULOUS!

Loved this, my family loves sushi and this fulfilled our craving on a Sunday night. The only thing I would change is to use a little less soy sauce and make sure to use low sodium grade.

This was very light and refreshing. Very flavorful.
