Sriracha Tuna Towers with Micro Greens and Guacamole

by Joanne on September 3, 2013

This recipe was based on a suggestion found at Weave Thousand Flavors. I changed it quite a bit but used the same “towering” concept.  We absolutely loved this dish.

The Sriracha chili sauce can be replaced by your favorite hot sauce but keep in mind, nothing beats Sriracha.

Serves 4 * You will need a small can that you have cleaned and removed both ends, such as a 8 1/2 oz can of peas or corn or such.


  • 8 – 10 oz of cooked wild rice. *Cook according to package directions and set aside to cool.
  • 12 oz can tuna, drained
  • 2 TBS Sriracha chili sauce

  • 2 TBS soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil

Mix the tuna and rest of the ingredients * NOT THE RICE, together in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to assemble.

Make the Guacamole

  • 2 Haas Avocados, Remove the seed and scoop the avocado into a bowl.  Let your husband mash it while you mix the rest of the guacamole ingredients

  • 2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 a cucumber – peel and seed then chop
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Mix all the above beginning with the mashed avocado to the salt and refrigerate until ready to assemble.

  • You will also need a container of Micro Greens (Broccoli, Cabbage, Kohlrabi, kale)

        Loving that elegant presentation- The micro greens on top are what make it so chic! I must admit, I don’t often use hot sauce in general, but when I do, 9 times out of 10 I reach for sriracha. I know, so predictable, but so good!

            I never was a tuna fan (even before going vegetarian), but these towers are so pretty, you might just trick me into liking it!
