Focus On Fats 

Tuna is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, essential in supporting brain health and eye health. Avocados contain oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat that helps to support heart health and battle inflammation in the body.

1. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, wasabi paste, vinegar and honey.

2. Place sesame seeds in a large dish. Rub tuna with one-half of oil, then season with salt and pepper. Dredge fish in sesame seeds to coat.

3. In a large skillet on medium-high, heat remaining one-half of oil. Add tuna to skillet, placing it away from you to avoid oil splatter; cook, turning once, until just seared on the outside, 3 to 6 minutes, depending on thickness (do not overcook). Transfer to a cutting board; slice into strips.

4. Arrange nori sheets on a work surface, shiny side facing down, long end in front of you. Place equal amounts of fish, avocado, cucumber and carrots at a 45-degree angle above the bottom-left corner of each sheet; lightly drizzle each with wasabi mayo. Roll into cones, sealing outer seam with a little water, if necessary. (Tip: Alternatively, try placing nori, fillings and wasabi mayo on the table family-style and let everyone roll their own.) Serve remaining wasabi mayo on the side.
