PREPARATIONS: (15 minutes)

Brush tuna with olive oil and sprinkle generously with sea salt and pepper. Sear the tuna in a pre-heated dry sauté pan for 2 to 3 minutes on each side.

For the dressing, whisk together ¼ cup of olive oil, the lime zest, lime juice, wasabi powder, soy sauce, Tabasco, 2.5 teaspoons of sea salt and ½ tsp pepper.

Lightly toss thick-chunks of avocado, tuna, fruit or heart of palm and red onion. Drizzle with more dressing and top with scallions and sesame seeds. Serve at room temperature.

You may substitute natural baked chicken, grilled salmon or tenderloin of beef for Ahi tuna.
