- 1 cup cooked brown rice

- ¼ cup tamari
- 1 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp rice vinegar
- 2 green onions, sliced
- 1 small cucumber, thinly sliced
- 1 avocado, diced
- Microgreens or sprouts (for garnish)
- White and black sesame seeds (for garnish)
- 1 cup mayonnaise (preferably homemade)
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- ½ tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ½ tablespoon smoked paprika
- 2 tablespoons water (or more if it is too thick)
- ½ tablespoon raw honey (optional)
- Cube the ahi tuna into bite sized pieces.
- In a small bowl, stir together the tamari, sesame oil and rice vinegar. Then add the ahi tuna and gently stir until all of the pieces are coated. Add the green onions and stir again.

- Garnish with microgreens or sprouts, drizzle with spicy sauce and sprinkle with white and black sesame seeds.
*Smoked salmon can be substituted if no sushi-grade tuna is available.
