2        lbs. fresh Tuna steaks, 1-inch thick
      good olive oil
      Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

      grated zest from 2 limes
6        tbl. freshly squeezed lime juice (about 3 limes)
1        tsp. wasabi power (or more if you like it)
2        tsp. soy sauce
10        dashes Tabasco sauce
2        firm, ripe Hass avocados, large-diced
1/2        red onion, thinly sliced
1        large ripe tomato, seeded and chopped
1/4        cup minced green onions, white and green parts (about 2 onions)
21/2        tsp. kosher salt and ground pepper to taste
1to 2        tbl. toasted sesame seeds for garnish

Brush both sides of the steaks with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
Cook tuna over hot coals for about 2-1/2 minutes on each side or sear in a very hot saute pan.
Remove to a plate. The tuna should be seared on the outside and raw inside. Allow to cool
and then cut  into large bite-size cubes.

For the dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup olive oil, lime zest, lime juice,
wasabi powder, soy sauce, Tabasco, salt and pepper.
Toss the avocados in the dressing and then arrange the avocados, tuna, tomato,
and red onion on individual plates. Drizzle with more dressing and sprinkle with scallions
and toasted sesame seeds. Serve at room temp.
Can be put onto a bed of fresh greens if desired. I've done it both ways.
Note: be sure to coat avocaddos immediately with extra lime juice to keep them from turning brown.
