Recipe type: Seafood
Cuisine: Seafood
Serves: 8
Cucumber-Mango Salsa
  • ½ c. cucumber, small dice
  • ½ c. mango, small dice
  • ¼ c. thinly sliced red cabbage
  • ¼-1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated (depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 2 tsp. rice vinegar
  • ¼ tsp. sesame oil
Cilantro-Wasabi Sauce
  • ½ c. sour cream
  • ¼ c. mayonnaise
  • 1 Tb. prepared wasabi (use less if you prefer less heat)
  • Small handful fresh cilantro, chopped
Fish & Tortillas
  • ~1 lb. fresh tuna steaks (about 2-3 large pieces)
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground (or cracked) black pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Corn or flour tortillas
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish
  1. Combine all ingredients for Cucumber-Mango salsa; set aside or refrigerate about 10-15 minutes.
  2. Mix together all ingredients for Cilantro-Wasabi Sauce; set aside or refrigerate about 10-15 minutes.
  3. Heat a non-stick or cast iron pan to high.
  4. Using a paper towel, pat dry the fish and generously sprinkle both sides with salt and black pepper.
  5. Add about 1 Tb. olive oil to pan. Place tuna in the pan and sear about 1-2 minutes each side (to desired level of doneness).
  6. Remove fish from heat and transfer to a cutting board. Once slightly cooled, slice with a very sharp knife.
  7. Using a paper towel, wipe the pan then sprinkle a little olive oil in the pan to heat up the tortilla on each side to your desired level of doneness. OR, if you have a gas stovetop, heat a burner to medium/low and place the tortilla directly onto the grill for a ‘charred’ effect.
  8. Assemble tortillas with tuna, salsa and sauce. Sprinkle additional cilantro, if desired.
