Ahi Tuna Tacos

IMG_4441 Had some ahi tuna lying around along with enough stuff to make a salsa for topping so slapped it all together for a delicious taco!


2 ahi tuna steaks

1/4 sliced yellow onion

pepper – to taste

olive oil

pepperjack cheese – for topping

For salsa:

1 tomatillo – chopped

1 Serrano chili – seeded and chopped

1 tbs olive oil

1/4 cup cilantro


Start with the salsa, which is simple and easy.  In a blender or chopper, combine already chopped tomatillo, the Serrano chili, cilantro and olive oil.  If it is too thick, you can add a little bit of water or more olive oil.  This makes about 1/2 cup to 1 cup of salsa, depending on the size of your tomatillo.  I went for the biggest one I could find.

For the taco base, start with a little olive oil in a skillet and allow the onions to brown for about 4 to 5 minutes.  Add the tuna. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side then, using a fork, flake the fish.  Add a little pepper if you so desired.  Make sure the fish is cooked to your desired doneness before serving!  Top with a little cheese and salsa, and even some sour cream, if you’d like!

Enjoy this with either a white or red wine.
