  • 2 packages shirataki rice
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon tamari
  • 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 5 drops stevia
  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 2 6-ounce wild caught tuna steaks, each about 1 inch thick
  • Coarsely ground black pepper
  • 4 radishes (or daikon radish), sliced
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 nori sheets, crumbled
  • 1 small cucumber, cut into matchsticks
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • Pickled ginger
  • Wasabi powder – making into a paste (note: if you cannot find a compliant wasabi powder that is 100% wasabi root or, do not like the heat, omit it from the recipe)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Prepare the rice according to package directions. Chill it in the fridge while you prepare the rest of the sushi bowl.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the next eight ingredients (tahini through stevia). Set aside.
  3. Heat the grapeseed oil in a heavy skillet over high heat. Pat the tuna steaks dry with paper towels. Season liberally with black pepper and place them in the pan. Cook undisturbed for 1 minute, then flip and cook 1 minute more (the tuna should be rare to medium-rare – but cook it according to your taste). Transfer the tuna to a cutting board, and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing across the grain.
  4. Assemble the bowls: Divide the rice, seared tuna, radish, green onion, nori, cucumber, avocado, and sesame seeds evenly between two bowls. Drizzle the dressing over the top, and garnish with pickled ginger.
