  • 1/4 onion
  • [Sauce]

    • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 1/3 tbsp red wine vinegar
    • 1 tsp French mustard
    • 2 pinches of salt (2 g)
    • Garlic (grated), a little
  • Salt

Preparation

1

Cut the tuna into 2 cm cubes. Peel the avocado and remove the pit. Cut into 2 cm cubes. Cut the onion along the grain into thin slices. Soak in water for a couple of minutes and drain.

Directions

1

Combine the [sauce] ingredients in a bowl placed in a bowl of ice water (ice bath). Stir in the tuna, avocado and onion, and refrigerate.

Prepare a big pot full of water (about 4 liters), bring to a boil on high heat, add a tablespoon of salt (about 20g, or about 0.5% of the water). Fan out the linguine in the pot, push it to the bottom quickly, and stir.

3

When the water comes to a boil again, turn down the heat and cook the linguine at a gentle boil, until soft to your taste.

Advice

The estimated time is one minute longer than the suggested time.

4

When it's done, pour it into a strainer to drain the hot water, then put the whole strainer into ice-cold water.

5

Drain the water and use paper towel to soak up all of the excess water.

6

Add the linguine to the sauce and other ingredients. Place the bowl in a bowl of ice water or ice bath and mix together.
