  1. Cook the rice according to packet instructions. While cooking, prepare the other ingredients.
  2. Cut the tuna into 1x1cm cubes and place in a bowl. Add the harissa, soy sauce and sesame oil and mix to coat all over. Get all the other ingredients ready to serve.
  3. When the rice is cooked, spoon into 4 bowls (fill it about halfway). Arrange the tuna, avo, radishes, broad beans, spring onion and ginger on top of the rice in each bowl and sprinkle the avo with poppy seeds.
  4. Serve immediately, with extra soy sauce.

Serves 4
Tip: Buy small portions tuna or salmon sashimi from your local sushi bar—you’re only going to use a small amount and this way you’ll know it is fresh, trimmed, skinless and boneless.
