JUST BEFORE SERVICE
- Lay peeled avocado halves on the flat side. With a thin knife, slice avocado into 1/8-inch slices, keeping each avocado half separate. (Make slices without moving the avocado. The avocado must remain intact.) Carefully flatten the sliced avocado to fan out. Place on a piece of plastic wrap and cover. Keep refrigerated.
- Mound 2 generous tablespoons tuna in center of plate in a loaf shape. Carefully scoop up one sliced avocado half with a knife and place on top of the tuna ceviche loaf. Drizzle the plate with additional dressing. Dust avocado with some powdered corn nuts and a pinch of salt. Garnish plate with radish sprouts.
