Ahi Tuna Salad 
submitted by Erin Evarts for the 180 Weight Loss Challenge

32 oz. Sushi Grade Ahi Tuna
Zest of 1 lime
1/2 c chopped Green bell pepper
1/2 c chopped Green onion
1/2 c chopped Red Onion
1/4 c chopped Dill pickle
6 tbsp. lime juice (about 3 limes)
1 tsp Wasabi powder
2 tsp Soy Sauce
12 dashes Tabasco/ hot sauce
NTM Salt (to taste)
Pepper (to taste)

Bring pot of water with a dash of NTM salt to a boil
Add Ahi tuna to boiling water, and reduce heat to a gentle boil until cooked through, about 10-12 minutes (I like mine raw in the center so I cook 5 min)
While tuna is boiling, chop green bell pepper (1/2 cup), green onion (1/2 cup), red onion (1/2 cup), dill pickle (1/4 cup).
In a large mixing bowl, add zest of 1 lime, juice of 3 limes, soy sauce (2 tsp), wasabi powder (1 tsp), tabasco/ hot sauce (12 dashes), salt, and pepper.
When Ahi is done cooking, remove from pot to cutting board and let cool 5 min. Then chop into bite size pieces and add to mixing bowl.
Toss to combine all ingredients.

Makes 6 servings of about 5 oz. tuna each
