Safe Catch Tuna Stack

This is probably the fanciest thing I've ever made in 15 minutes. And not only is it pretty, it was super tasty, and filling! I wanted to recreate a tuna stack that I've had at one of my favorite restaurants, but switched out the fresh tuna for canned Safe Catch Tuna.  Everything in this recipe is completely clean and compliant. So go ahead- impress your family, facebook friends, real friends, whoever- you can totally do this!
Lets talk about the ingredients
So, all tuna is NOT created equal. You will want to be sure that you get a high quality tuna with no Soy and one that is low in mercury. Safe Catch Tuna is Whole30 approved and has the lowest amount of mercury of any tuna on the market. We are happy to have a can of Safe Catch Tuna in our February Whole Box! The rest of the ingredients you probably have around your house- Compliant Mayo (we used Primal Kitchen), sesame oil, red onion, avocado, cucumber, mango, sesame seeds, sprouts, coconut aminos, and hot sauce. The secret tool that was used to make the tuna stack into its perfect shape was PVC pipe! It's definitely not a cute pinteresty looking kitchen tool, but it got the job done!
Chop Chop Chop!
The thing that takes the longest on this recipe is the chopping. You will need to chop the cucumbers, red onion, and mango into small pieces.
Layer #1: Avocado
Mash the avocado in a small bowl. Plate the PVC Pipe and put down a thick layer of mashed avocado.
Layer #2: Tuna/ Mayo
Break up the Tuna with a fork and add about a teaspoon of mayo until it reaches the right consistency, we want it all to stick together, but not be too loose. It should look something like this:
Layer #3: Mango and Cucumber
Add the mango and cucumber, Drizzle it with about 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil.
Layer #4 Red Onion
Sprinkle a couple of red onions on the top, don't go too crazy with these. Just about a dozen.
Layer#5 Sprouts 
Top your masterpiece off with sprouts or micro greens. Let it sit for about a minute or two.
Once you have worked up the courage to lift up your PVC pipe, you will have a beautiful stack! Mix up a little mayo and hot sauce and drizzle it on the top, finish with sesame seeds.
Add a side of coconut aminos if you normally like to dip things in soy sauce. Wam Bam, you now have the most instagramable lunch that you have ever made in 15 minutes!
