There is no greater delicacy than that of superb quality sashimi. When you start with such an ingredient, little else can go wrong. This is my recipe for a classic Japanese favorite- spicy tuna with mixed greens. It’s a super easy recipe to follow requiring all of 10 minutes or so to complete. The end result is a highly nutritious and delicious dish that keeps your palate and waistline happy.

Serves 4

1 lb sashimi grade raw tuna
2 scallions (green onions), finely chopped
1/2 large cucumber, peeled and diced
3/4 lb mixed salad greens rinsed and drained+
4 tablespoons regular soy sauce
2 tablespoons Sriracha chili sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lime or lemon juice
2 tablespoon sesame oil
4 tablespoons olive oil


In a large mixing bowl, toss together the scallions, diced cucumber and salad greens. Divide and arrange on serving plates. Set aside.

In a medium sized bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing until thoroughly combined. Set aside.

On a clean chopping board, slice the tuna into approximately half inch cubes. Gently toss the cubed tuna over the salad greens. Finally drizzle the dressing evenly over the tuna and salad. Serve immediately.
