INGREDIENTS (per serving)

  • ¼ lb raw tuna, or any raw fish*, cubed


  • 2 tsp chili flakes

  • 1 tsp sugar

  • 2 tsp garlic, minced

  • 2 tsp ginger, minced

  • ¼ cup soy

  • ¼ tsp fish sauce (optional but delicious)

  • 1 tbs rice vinegar

  • 1 ½ tsp sesame oil

  • ½ lemon, juiced

  • salt, as needed to taste


  • ½ sweet onion or “Maui onion”, sliced

  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced

  • 1 tbs sesame seed (or more if desired)

  • 1 sheet nori, cut with a sharp knife (or scissors) to ½ inch squares


Mix all ingredients for the dressing in a medium bowl and add more salt or lemon as needed to taste.

Toss in onions, then tuna, then nori. Add half of the scallions, reserving the other half as a topping.

Finish w/ sesame seeds and rest of scallions.

Enjoy with rice or on top of a salad.

*Note: Any sushi grade, good to eat raw fish will work for this recipe. Adjust the spice level as you desire or add more sesame seeds if you’d like! Make it yours! We like ours with a bit more spice and some extra seeds on top for the crunch
