Ahi Tuna Tacos

What a great way to have Ahi Tuna and tacos at the same time. It makes for great weekend fare and is fun to do. Use of the chipotle pepper sauce and sour cream gives a zippy layer.

  • 1 lb. seared Ahi tuna
  •  1 tbsp. olive oil
  •  2 tsp. 5 spice powder
  •   1 tsp. steak seasoning
  •  1/2 tsp. black pepper
  •  1 lime
  •  3 cups shredded cabbage (red would be nice here)
  •  1/2 cup sour cream
  •  1 tsp. chipotle pepper adobo sauce
  •  12 x 6 inch tortillas (corn)
  •  cilantro
  •  lime wedges

Grate the lime peel and then juice the lime. Add to the shredded cabbage and pinch of salt.

In a small bowl, mix together the sour cream and chipotle sauce and set aside.

Wrap the tortillas in tin foil and place in a warming oven or on the grill for about 5 minutes, turning over just once. Do not burn.

Coat the ahi tuna with the 5 spice, steak seasoning, salt and pepper and sear just 2 minutes of each side. Cut into 1 inch cubes.

Spread the sour cream mixture over all the tortillas and fill the tortillas with the slaw, add the ahi tuna and lime wedges on the side.

This should make your mouth water just reading this. Now go and make it.
