IMG_6524

I was so THRILLED!!! at how this dish turned out!:-) I was a little worried about balancing out the citrus with the soy. The tuna is so beautiful and delicate I didn’t want to overpower it, I wanted to add to it.

What You Will Need:

1/2 – 1 Pound Sushi grade Ahi Tuna, diced

2 Oranges, juiced

1 Baby Cucumber, diced small

1 Bunch Green Onions, chopped

1 Avocado, sliced thin

1/4 C Soy Sauce

1 Tsp Sesame Seeds

Any kind of crackers you would like to use. I like using either sesame crackers, or baked wonton.

*Directions:

My favorite Part!! Prep your Mis en Place šŸ™‚ Blaring in the background is the song Paris by Magic Man. I cant help but dance around when this song plays. I am sipping on a cup of coffee because my energy is a bit low from the killer workout I had earlier.

Extra: This is such a wonderful Hors d’ oeuvre or just by itself as a meal! I loved the look on my family’s face as they took their first bite, I SCORED!
