Overall rate:

The baked quino mixture was very crunchy and tasty! Kale tasted like fresh green. Tuna tastes exactly same as seared tuna. If you like eating sushi, you will love it! I also recommand you spreading lemon juice on the fish. The citrus dressing was sour, salty, and mayo flavor. It was very good with fish. The dish was very healty and low calorie. It would be very good dish for lunch or dinner if you are on diet.

Rate: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ out of 5 because taste of this dish might be too healthy to someone including me haha. You will love it if you are on diet.

Thank you for reading:)
