Thai food meets tuna in this healthy Thai-inspired tuna stuffed avocado.

Avocado halves stuffed with Thai-inspired tuna, garnished with chopped cilantro and drizzled with spicy Asian chili sauce

Tuna stuffed avocados are something I eat as a healthy lunch option at least once a week. I’m always experimenting with creating new flavors. You’ve probably seen my viral recipe for a Mexican-inspired tuna stuffed avocado, and now I’m bringing you an all new one that has quickly become my new favorite. There’s no need for mayo in this tuna recipe! We’re keeping it healthy and tasty.

Pro Tip: use a high quality tuna for this recipe like Bumble Bee Solid White Albacore. Trust me, it matters. You can see the difference in quality just by opening the can.

In this recipe I’m flavoring tuna with lime juice, soy sauce, and garlic and am utilizing the tuna itself instead of the staple Thai flavor of fish sauce. The result is a light and refreshing Thai-style avocado that makes an absolute heavenly lunch. Add in the cilantro, green onions, and chopped peanuts and you’ve got yourself quite the little meal. If you are feeling spicy I highly recommend drizzling it with a little hot chili sauce. It packs that extra punch.

This was delicious! I’m looking for ways to get more potassium, but omg, the thai twist made this a huge treat!

A little twist on the drizzle: panang curry paste mixed with water and a touch of honey.

What a great idea — and the image made me want to take a bite out of my monitor. Brilliant concept — we adore tuna but this moves it out of "same old/same old." Thanks.

Avocados are a staple in our house and I love the idea of Thai version of a stuffed avocado!
