1 With a pastry brush (or the back of a spoon) brush both sides of beef with wasabi paste. Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan set over a medium-high heat. Cook beef for 3-4 minutes each side or until done to your liking. Remove beef from pan, cover to keep warm and leave to rest for 5 minutes. Cut in thin slices.
2 Meanwhile, cook rice following packet directions then transfer to a large salad bowl. Add cucumber, avocado, carrots, bean sprouts, spring onions and ginger. Toss to combine.
3 Whisk dressing ingredients in a small bowl. Add to salad and toss to combine. Top sushi salad with beef slices and serve.
Sprinkle salad with 1/2 sheet finely shredded toasted seaweed (nori) or 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds.
- Make it low FODMAP: Use 1/2 avocado and green parts of spring onions only.
- Make it gluten free: Check wasabi and tamari are gluten free.
