Make the Rice

  • Rinse the rice in a fine sieve.
  •  Add it to a small pot with 1 ¼ cups water and a pinch of salt. Bring to boil.
  • Once boiling, reduce the heat to simmer and cook, covered, until the rice is tender and the water is absorbed, 10-15 minutes.

Prepare the Ingredients

  • In the meantime, rinse and quarter the grape tomatoes.
  • Rinse and thinly slice the cabbage (or shred it with a grater, if desired).
  • Peel, pit and slice the avocado.
  • Rinse and dice the green onions.

Cook the Tuna

  • Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat.
  • Add the tuna and season with salt and pepper to taste. Sear the tuna for 3 minutes, then flip.
  • Continue to sear for another 2-3 minutes or until the fish is moist, flaky, and cooked through.
  • Transfer the tuna to a cutting board. Let cool before slicing into chunks.

Bring It All Together

  • In a small bowl, combine the Cilantro Zest-Oh Dressing, 1 tbsp. olive oil and 1 tbsp. water.
  • Evenly divide the rice between two bowls.
  • Top with chunks of tuna, cabbage, tomatoes, and avocado.
  • Drizzle with the cilantro dressing mixture and sprinkle with green onions to serve!
