Few drops of Tabasco
3 fresh red chilli reseeded finely chopped

Filet the tuna, having the centre bones off the meat and cut them to tiny 1/4 inch cubes

Similarly with the avocado and mangoes

Slice and julienne the red raddish

Combine the Lemon zest, lime juice EVOO, pepper, chopped red chilli salt wasabi soya, tobasco and whisk it lightly, you want a slightly tangy dressing. Adjust seasoning as per taste

Now combine the tuna with the dressing and let it rest in the fridge for an hour at least

Have the rest of the ingredients stored in the fridge separately

Using a small bowl or a mould make layers of tuna, mango avocado and place it on a plate garnish with raddish or coriander of you'd like... I missed out the coriander as I wanted the punch of the red chilli and the onions in between the layers were good for me

Garnish with radish and serve!
