    1 pkg (0.2 oz) seaweed snacks, torn into pieces (TRY: SeaSnax Organic Seaweed Sheets)

    4 tsp toasted sesame seeds, optional


1. Make dressing: In a small unheated skillet, combine avocado oil, green onions, ginger and garlic. Place over low heat and cook until mixture sizzles. Let cook for 1 minute, then transfer to a small food processor. Add remaining dressing ingredients and blend until smooth.

2. Prepare bowls: In a cast iron skillet on medium- high, heat oil. Sear tuna for 4 minutes, turning to sear all sides including edges. Transfer to a cutting board and slice thinly.

3. Using a spiral maker, working one at a time, secure cucumber and turn crank to create noodles, following manufacturer’s directions. Place between clean kitchen towels and press to remove excess water. Divide noodles among bowls. Drizzle each with 1 tbsp dressing. Divide avocado, carrot, seaweed and tuna among bowls. Drizzle with remaining dressing. Sprinkle with sesame seeds (if using).
