This sashimi tuna salad bowl is all my favourite foods in one meal. So fresh, healthy and delicious.

We use sashimi grade tuna, purchased from Fine Fish in Neutral Bay. As we always say, the quality of the produce is of utmost importance so we prefer to have high quality fish less often than having it more often and having to compromise on quality.

You can alter the vegetables depending on what is seasonally available. We have used a delicious combination of carrot, cucumber, cabage, avocado and mache lettuce, and served with toasted sesame seeds and a soft boiled egg.

Serve this sashimi tuna salad as a main for a light and healthy dinner or as a side dish to share.
