Avocados are high in heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids and tuna is high in protein, which makes this the ultimate low carb meal!

What is Tuna Salad Avocado Bowl?

Tuna salad mixed with Kewpie mayo, furikake, and furikake are stuffed in a halved avocado.  There are two ways to make this Tuna Avocado Bowl.

One way is to completely hollow out the avocado and mix it together along with the tuna salad.

The second way is to just add the tuna salad mixture on top of a halved avocado and then scoop a bit of avocado with each bite.  The choice is yours!

What are the health benefits of avocado?

Avocados are a superfood!  They are low carb and very nutrient-dense containing over 20 different vitamins and minerals.  The health benefits are endless!

Avocados contain healthy fats that can fuel you throughout the day and keep you feeling full and regulate appetite.

How do I speed up avocado ripening?

I recommend placing the avocado in a brown paper bag along with an apple or banana for a couple of days.  This will speed up the ripening process.

What is furikake and where can I purchase it?

Furikake is a dry Japanese seasoning containing seaweed, sesame seeds, salt and very little sugar.  It’s most commonly sprinkled on rice or used to make onigiri (rice balls).

You can find furikake at most Japanese/Asian supermarkets.  I’ve also seen them at American supermarkets, as well as at Trader joes.

Any tips or tricks for making Avocado Tuna Bowls?

  • Ripe but not overly avocados work best for this recipe.
  • Feeling lazy? You can also just mix everything in a bowl and add the cut avocado. No need to stuff the shell.
