Seared Tuna and Avocado Salad

This is an Ina Garten (or 'In a Garden' as we like to call her ;) ) recipe for Grilled Tuna Rolls. I have actually tried it a couple of times, the first being way too salty and that was adding much less salt then the recipe suggests. So now I just season the tuna and add no extra salt to the dressing.
It is the easiest quick tasty dish to prepare and we just buy one piece of beautiful fresh tuna to sear (only cost $5 for about 200g I think).

I give the kiddies the 'well done' end!
The dressing is oil, lime zest, lime juice, wasabi powder and soy sauce. The recipe also says hot sauce but because of the kidlets I leave that out (the sacrifices we make......).
You then mix the dressing with avocado, red onion, scallion (or shallot/spring onion), toasted sesame seeds and the seared tuna. Serve on some toasted bread with rocket. Delicious!
The wasabi hit is not as big as I would like so I'm not sure if you need to dissolve the powder in water before adding to the dressing?
