I love this preparation. This was one where we had an extra piece of tuna in the fridge and needed to come up with a use for it. As you can see in the video, it takes seven minutes from start to finish and you end up with a world-class meal. This would easily cost $25-$35 at a Sushi Spot or somewhere like Roy’s.
I encourage you. Scratch that. I BEG YOU to find some Togarashi and make this. It will open your eyes to how simple cooking amazing food can be. Sharpen up your knife and when you go to slice the tuna, do so as quickly and with as few strokes as possible. If you look closely at the pictures, I tore one edge of the front fillet and that is a no no.
I’ll make this quick because I’m heading out for “The Bro’s” kindergarten concert. He is singing three songs and told us that we need to bring a snack and water because it is going to be long! Gotta love it. I’m bringing my camera, so you better believe I’m going to share some pics.
Remember that, “The only place success comes before hard work is in the dictionary” and…
“Keep It Paleo!”
Tuna Togarashi with Avocado and Shrooms
“Keep It Paleo!”
We have 8oz. tuna and there are 1.5 ounces in one block, so ~5 blocks
We have 12oz. of mushrooms, which is exactly one block.
We’ve got some cooking oil included, I’ll say a total of 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil, which is 2.5 blocks on the 3 grams per block prescription.
We’ve got half of a small avocado, which is ~6 fat blocks.
We’ve got some Massie Mayo, which I’ll give 1.5 blocks to as it is essentially olive oil.
The Balancing Act:
If you replace each carb block with 2 blocks of fat, you are pretty balanced. If you are on the 1.5 grams of fat per block, then you need to cut the fat in half and eat 4 blocks (1 apple and 1 orange) of fruit with your meal. Boom!
