The other part of this recipe that makes it quick and easy is the fact that we are using raw tuna- which means- it takes all of zero minutes to cook! Because of this, it is super important that you use sushi grade tuna here.
How do I know if the tuna is sushi grade tuna?
The best way to be sure that the tuna can be eaten raw is to ask the fish monger at the grocery store! Sushi grade tuna can be a bit of a challenge to find, depending on where you live. Many times your best bet will be in a speciality seafood store or Japanese supermarket.
What if I don’t eat seafood? Can I still make this recipe?
Yes! You can make a simple switch to make this completely vegetarian. Simply marinate the cucumbers as you would the tuna, and you will still have a super delish meal.
What other substitutions could I make for this recipe?
The possibilities are endless, really. If you didn’t want to use cauliflower rice, you could swap it for white or brown rice to incorporate more carbs into this meal. Speaking of vegetables, if you wanted to add more veggies into this meal, you could steam some broccoli and add that to the spicy tuna bowl. You could also add avocado, pickled ginger or shredded carrots!
