Ahi Tuna Salad

One of my favorite starters to order at a restaurant, aside from the cheese plate, is the tuna tartare.  To satisfy the craving at home, I make something similar once in awhile.  This recipe does call for a couple of unique ingredients you may not necessarily have on hand, but you can pick them up at most grocery stores.

  • Ahi tuna
  • Tomato
  • Avocado
  • Scallions
  • Spicy mayo (I get it from the sushi counter at my store- it’s about $1.00 for a small cup)
  • Wasabi paste- comes in a tube
  • Black sesame seeds
I sear the tuna in a skillet over medium high heat for about two minutes per side and them remove and let rest while I dice the tomato and avocado.  Add in a bit of chopped scallion, the spicy mayo and wasabi paste to taste and sprinkle with the black sesame seeds.  
Are you into sushi or not so much?  I know people love it or hate it.  I’m definitely in the love category!

    I love sushi, but tuna is not my fave. My hubby however LOVES it, so I'll have to make this for him. Great photo!

    How do you select the tuna? Would the tuna at whole foods be acceptable? Seems like it has to be sushi-grade…? Thanks!

      I do get mine at Whole Foods. Sometimes they don't have sushi grade, but I still buy it because I'm searing it for a minute on both sides so I think it's okay. Great question!
