I love tuna (especially if it’s rare or raw). If it’s on a menu, you can pretty much bet your boots I’m ordering it. So if I’m at a sushi restaurant, I literally order tuna 100% of the time.

And as much as I love sushi, it’s not exactly a health food.
Don’t get me wrong, fish is amazing for you and white rice is an easily digestible grain that provides glucose.
But unless you’re at a great place, it’s likely farmed fish that’s covered in wheat-ified soy sauce and the sauces are usually made of vegetable oils.
Not good.
When tuna went on sale at my local Whole Foods, I jumped on the chance to recreate my favorite raw tuna salad. It was surprisingly good, even better than the restaurant I get it from. It was so simple to make and is definitely my new favorite dinner.

It was seriously SO. GOOD.
