  • Combine the tuna, lime juice, green onions, and wasabi in a small bowl; mix well and season with black pepper.
  • Just before filling the cucumbers, add the pine nuts and sesame seeds to the fish mixture; mix well.
  • Carefully spoon some filling into each cucumber piece, making a dome of filling on the top of each piece.
  • Serve chilled.
