Everyone, say hello to: Spicy Tuna Roll Stuffed Avocados.
Think deconstructed spicy tuna sushi roll, made lighter, ditch the rice, swap the raw tuna for cooked, and stuffed into an avocado boat vessel.
I always struggle with finding quick, easy, no bake, can be prepped ahead of time, super delicious, but also healthy lunches.
Are you with me?
I get bored with prepping salads and while I LOVE having soup and chili, sometimes I want something cold and crunchy for lunch!
This recipe is a texture, flavor bomb, and it’s crazy easy to make.
Let’s doooo this.
What ingredients are in spicy tuna roll stuffed avocados?
The ingredient list for these stuffed avocados is super short. Basically, you’re making a deconstructed spicy tuna roll filling and spooning it into avocados. Yes please!
- Olive oil based mayonnaise or mayo of choice. I love using the olive oil based mayo to keep these a little lighter.
- Sriracha. Add as much or as little as you like.
- Seasoned rice vinegar. Adds a great tanginess.
- Soy sauce.
- Sesame oil. This adds SUCH a nice, nutty flavor.
- Tuna. Use your favorite brand.
- Cucumber. Adds really great freshness.
- Red bell pepper. Adds amazing texture and color.
- Avocado. This is your vessel.
How do you make spicy tuna roll stuffed avocados? can i make them ahead of time?
- Whisk together the spicy mayo sauce: mayo, sriracha, vinegar, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Set aside.
- Place tuna, cucumber, and bell pepper into a bowl, then toss with sauce. Chill in fridge.
- Halve and pit an avocado. Top with the chilled tuna mixture.
- Garnish with cilantro and sesame seeds and enjoy!
If you want to make these ahead of time for lunches just follow steps 1-2, then portion out the filling in individual containers and place the filling back into the fridge. Keep the avocado uncut and whole until lunch time!
Then when lunch rolls around, cut the avocado, stuff it with the filling, and boom.
Do i have to stuff the spicy tuna roll filling into an avocado? what other serving suggestions do you have?
Nope! You do NOT have to stuff the filling into an avocado. The spicy tuna roll filling is delicious on it’s own honestly, and it would also be great with:
- Lettuce or mixed greens
- Toasted bread
- Plantain chips
- Tortillas (for a wrap situation)
- Rice or quinoa
- If YOU have other suggestions, I’d love to hear in the comments below!
