For Coconut Sticky Rice

  • 1 1/2 cups white rice
  • 1 tsp coarse salt
  • 3 cups coconut milk
  • 2 1/2 cups water

For Dressing

  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp granulated sugar


  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1 fresh tuna steak
  • salt
  • chopped avocado, thawed frozen corn, sliced radishes, sliced green onion, cucumber, chopped ripe peach or mango, chopped peanuts as desired


For Coconut Rice

  • Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover. Cook for 20-25 minutes, occasionally stirring to avoid sticking, until rice is creamy and tender.  If the liquid evaporates before the rice has softened, stir in 1/2 cup of water and cook until absorbed. 

For Dressing

  • Whisk together all ingredients in a bowl or measuring cup.

For Tuna and Toppings

  • Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet or grill pan over high heat. Season tuna with salt on both sides then add to pan. Cook, flipping to sear all sides. Transfer to a cutting board, rest 5 minutes, then use a sharp knife to cut it in small pieces. 

Top rice with seared tuna, desired toppings, and a big spoonful of dressing.
