Ahi Tuna with Mango Salsa
May 4, 2023
This is my favorite dish. The tuna along with the salsa is simply perfection.
Yield: 4 servings
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon everything-but-the-bagel seasoning
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons oil
2 slices sushi-grade tuna steak
2 mangoes, cubed
2 avocados, cubed
½ purple onion, diced
1 jalapeño pepper, deseeded and diced
Juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons orange juice
Salt to taste
Black pepper to taste
1/3 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice
4 corn tortillas
In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, sesame oil, everything-but-the-bagel seasoning, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and honey. Whisk to combine.
Place tuna steaks in a shallow dish and pour marinade over them. Cover and refrigerate for 3–6 hours (the longer the better).
In a frying pan over high heat, heat oil until very hot. Lay one tuna steak in the oil and cook for 45 seconds to 1 minute, depending on how rare you like it. Flip over and cook for an additional 45 seconds to 1 minute.
Remove from pan and lay on a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes.
Repeat with second tuna steak.
With a serrated knife, cut slices of tuna against the grain.
In a bowl, combine mango salsa ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
In a bowl, mix sriracha mayo ingredients until combined.
To assemble: Slightly toast tortillas. Place mango salsa in the center of each and drizzle with sriracha mayo. Place sliced tuna steaks on top.
