My favorite dish at Japanese restaurants usually has fresh tuna. There is a great fish market near my house that sells sushi grade tuna, fresh and delicious, perfect to eat raw. While perusing the inner aisles, I found white miso paste in the refrigerator. The salty and earthy flavor is often underestimated and simply not used enough.


1/2 lb Sushi grade Tuna*, chopped
1 avocado, cubed

Miso Dressing:

1 tbsp white miso
2 tbsp honey
1 1/2 tbsp water

  1. Combine tuna and avocado in a bowl, mix gently so as not to break down the avocado
  2. Combine all the dressing ingredients
  3. Dress the tuna and avocado with the miso.
  4. Enjoy!

*make sure the tuna you purchase is acceptable to eat raw. Eating raw fish that is unsuitable can have deadly consequences.
