  • ½ lb raw sushi grade Ahi tuna, diced into small cubes
  • cup red onion, finely sliced or diced
  • cup lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • cup roma tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeño, seeds removed and finely diced
  • ½ teaspoon lime zest
  • ½ avocado, diced
  • kosher salt, to taste (approx 1/4 teaspoon)
  • chips or baguette slices, for serving


  • Combine all ingredients (except avocado) in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally. Don’t let it marinate for more than 2 hours or the meat will become tough.
  • Just before serving, gently fold in the avocado and season with salt.
  • Taste to adjust flavoring, and add more lime and cilantro if needed.
  • Serve with chips or baguette slices.
