Spicy Tuna Bowls

Tuna bowls are super easy, versatile dishes which can contain any toppings you choose We have never made spicy tuna before, but it turned out really easy to make and wonderfully delicious!
For our toppings, we chose cucumber, sliced green onion, avocado and roasted sesame seeds. We made the seared tuna with shallot ginger sauce before. You can find the recipe for the seared tuna using that link. Here, we will just focus on the spicy tuna.

Spicy Tuna

Ingredients:

1/2 lb of sushi grade ahi tuna
2 sliced green onions
1 tablespoons sesame seeds
3 tablespoons sriracha (to taste)
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons tequila (we didn't have sake...would imagine any distilled alcohol would work)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon soy sauce (to taste)

Sushi Rice for the Bowl
cucumber sliced for topping
avocado sliced for topping

Directions:

1. Finely dice tune into desired sized pieces. We like smaller pieces, other prefer larger cuts.
2. Mix together all ingredients, leaving some green onions and sesame seeds to top the bowl with. Add items like sriracha and soy sauce to desired taste.
3. Prepare your bowl by placing the warm sushi rice on the bottom, top with spicy tuna mixture and any desired toppings. 

What we liked:

It was so good and quick and easy and honestly, better than some that we have had at Japanese restaurants. 

What we didn't like:

It was great!

What Kaspian thought about it:

Too suspicious to try. Astrid loved the rice. A lot. All over her. We seriously have to take her highchair outside to shake her and it off after we offer her rice.
