2 teaspoons 7 spice togarashi blend
5 ounces organic greens spring mix
3 cherry tomatoes cut in half

4 ounce grated green apple
In a clean bowl mix the spring mix/cherry tomatoes/carrot along with 2 ounces wafu dressing. Place avocado on top to avoid bruising. Place on a clean plate
Lightly salt the tuna. Lightly dust the tuna with 7 spice togarashi. In a nonstick pan with 1 tablespoon of Neutral oil such as grapeeed or sunflower sear the tuna on all sides for 30 to 45 seconds, be careful not to overcook, and place on a cutting board to cut into 1-2 inch pieces to achieve 6 to 7 slices and place on plate with salad.
