Ahi Tuna Avocado Toast

I have dreams of opening up a little sandwich stand that would be called “Stuff On Toast.” I feel like I’ve mentioned this before. Oh and I’d serve pie too because after you eat something on toast you might want a piece of pie. You might not, actually, but I just want to be prepared in case you do. And maybe coffee. So pie, toast and cappuccinos. It would be our three life necessities under the same small, shack-like roof.

This rendition of Avocado Toast is a bit different. Having white miso in my fridge has become a staple. I love it because in the colder months I can throw it in a pot with hot water, along with seasonal vegetables and make a quick miso soup. I’m obsessed. In the warmer months it’s awesome to have on hand for making quick miso dressing. A little ginger and sesame oil and rice vinegar are added and that’s kind of it. .

Ahi Tuna Avocado Toast

The sushi-grade ahi tuna and avocado are cubed up and tossed with the dressing. And then it’s all put on your bread of choice. Pictured here is a sour dough boule which basically goes with everything.

I want to be one of those weirdo people that has a 20-year old starter of sour dough in their fridge. It’ll happen.

I ate this right after I took photos of it and it kind of was the perfect thing to eat for breakfast. Kinda weird eating ahi tuna for breakfast but it totally worked. Eat it at 1pm, if I’m totally weirding you out right now.

    where do you get sushi grade tuna? I see it occasionally at whole foods but it usually will cost my entire paycheck. is there somewhere else I should be looking?

    • Reply Adrianna Adarme August 16, 2013 at 1:21 pm

      I bought some at Whole Foods last night and it was $4 for 4 ounces, which is what you’ll need to create this little tartine. Not too bad! You can also go to a fish market–it’ll be slightly cheaper there.

    I love the “Stuff on Toast” idea! This tuna + avocado combo looks amazing. There’s a bakery/cafe in a suburb of Rochester, NY, that offers a “toast tasting” for breakfast with four slices of your choice of toast with butter and jam.

    This looks so good! I miss eating tuna so much. I stopped when I read about the over-fishing. I’ll try this with salmon! Thanks!

    I’ve never had tuna like this but this may change my mind about it! It looks so good! You should totally open “Stuff on Toast” 😉

    This looks fabulous! I love ahi tuna, and am usually a bit nervous to try making something raw at home… but you’ve given me courage! Onward!

    So pretty and your video is awesome!! How you do videos is beyond me, but they are awesome!! I love all things toast and pie…but I am not much of a coffee drinker, but I have not really tried so I could be convinced!

    Yum and YUM! This looks so tasty. I absolutely love miso too and can imagine how perfect these flavors are with the miso.

    I am in love with white miso at the moment! And I adore avocado toast, so yeah, this is happening.

    Omw this is perfect! I’ve been eating mashed avocado on toast for breakfast this week but adding the tuna…that brought it up to a lunch or dinner worthy item! Thanks!

  • Reply Bre August 17, 2013 at 10:12 am

    I love this idea. Unfortunately in my neck of the woods the only way to get sushi grade tuna is to order it from the local grocers and there is a 4 pound min. Since I’m single I’ve only done it once for a party and it was over $50.

    This sounds so amazing–it’s like a sushi salad sandwich! I definitely need to go find some sushi-grade fish ASAP. 🙂

    This looks delish! I’m a huge fan of avocado on toast with a dash of garlic sea salt. The ahi tuna addition looks so good. Definitely adding this to my list of recipes to try!

    This looks amazing!

    How many toast slices does this recipe make? Enough for two people? I’m wondering how much tuna to buy!

      This serves one person. Sorry I forgot to add the yield. Adding it now!

    Hi Adrianna!! I find your recipes quite easy and original, so I really like reading your posts. 🙂 It’s the first time that I am writing you a comment, though.
    And this is because I was searching for recipes with white miso and ended up finding this dressing, which I made and actually looooved. Better late than never! 😉
    It’s a familiar flavor (I had tasted it already in some Asian-inspired cuisine restaurants), so could not believe myself when [thanks to you!], I did manage to make it on my own!! 🙂 🙂
    I’ve tweaked the recipe a bit, to cope with what I had in the pantry, by swapping sesame oil with toasted sesame oil (half the portion) and adding some water, to break the oil’s punch.
    It’s definitely a winner, so thank you, thank you, thank you!! 🙂
