Asian Style Avocado and Fresh Tuna Rice Bowl

Asian Style Avocado and Fresh Tuna Rice Bowl

This is a cafe-restaurant style avocado and fresh tuna rice bowl that's great for lunch if you're eating by yourself. There's no heat involved so I recommend this for lunch on a hot summer day.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Avocado (the amount depends on the size)
1/4 to 1/3
Sashimi grade fresh tuna
50 to 60 g
●Soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons
● Mirin
1 tablespoon
● Sesame oil (vegetable oil is ok too)
1/2 tablespoon
Fish sauce
1 teaspoo
White sesame seeds
to taste
Plain steamed rice
Add as much as you like
Nori seaweed
to taste
Japanese leek or green onion
To taste


1. Peel and de-seed the avocado, cut into quarters and then cut into bite-sized pieces. Slice the tuna thinly on the diagonal.
2. Marinate the tuna slices in the combined flavoring ingredients, about around 10 minutes (in the refrigerator in the summer).
3. Put some rice in a bowl and top with the avocado and the marinated tuna and it's done! Add some finely shredded white part of a leek or green onion, nori seaweed, and sesame seeds!

Story Behind this Recipe

I love cafe-restaurant style fresh tuna and avocado rice bowl, but I don't like the mayonnaise that usually comes with it, so I re-arranged it with the Asian-style flavors I love.
