Seared Tuna Tacos with Crunchy Wontons, Green Onion Jalapeño Slaw, Seaweed Salad + Two Yummy Sauces!


My apologies for the night/filter-y photos on this post. I made these subsequently work yesterday for taco Tuesday and past the fourth dimension I got to photographing it was already night out 🙁 I detest how it’s getting darker earlier already! But I make looove fall. The end of summer is ever bittersweet. So on to these tacos! The thought was inspired by my swain as well as I’thousand obsessed with how these turned out. Combining ii of my favorite foods (sushi + tacos) couldn’t have been a meliorate idea. So many textures together with flavors! Such a surprise that I beloved them, correct?

The cusabi sauce as well as sesame soy glaze were SO GOOD on these. I likewise used blackening spice instead of crusting the tuna with sesame seeds as well as it was such an awesome idea.

It may audio like these tacos take a lot of components, simply they really come up together apace. Especially because y'all entirely fix the tuna for like 1-two minutes per side.

This makes plenty tacos for 2 people (well-nigh 6 tacos):

For the tacos:

ten oz. sushi form tuna

blackening seasoning

flour tortillas

seaweed salad

wonton crisps

sesame seeds for garnish

For the slaw:

iii c. shredded cabbage (I used a mixture of light-green and royal)

one/2 c. plainly Greek yogurt

one clove garlic

squash of lime

one scallion, chopped

1 jalapeño, seeds as well as ribs removed, chopped

pinch of table salt

For the cusabi sauce:

ane/four c. plainly Greek yogurt

two T. mayonnaise

squash of lime

i/two c. cucumber, peeled too chopped

1 clove garlic, chopped

ane/ii tsp. wasabi

For the sesame soy glaze:

1/4 c. soy sauce

i/four c. H2O

i T. toasted sesame crude

ane tsp. sesame seeds

2 T. saccharide

1 tsp. cornstarch

Begin past making the slaw. Put slaw mix in a medium bowl. Add Greek yogurt, garlic, lime juice, scallion, jalapeño, as well as salt into a nutrient processor. Pulse until a polish sauce forms. Pour into slaw mix in addition to stir to combine. Taste too season with additional common salt if desired.

Wipe out the nutrient processor amongst a paper towel and brand the cusabi. Combine Greek yogurt, mayo, lime juice, cucumber, garlic, too wasabi inward the nutrient processor in addition to pulse until a smoothen sauce forms. Taste to flavor as well as ready aside.

Make the sesame soy glaze. Combine soy sauce, H2O, sesame fossil oil, sesame seeds, saccharide, in addition to cornstarch inwards a small-scale saucepan over medium/high heat. Whisk to combine together with bring to a boil. Whisk constantly one time boiling for a couplet minutes until thickened. Set aside.

Heat cast atomic number 26 or nonstick skillet over high rut. I out a tiny drizzle of fossil oil in the pan in addition to and so wiped it out with a newspaper towel. Rub tuna liberally amongst blackening seasoning. Once pan is hot, sear tuna on each side for i-iii minutes depending on the thickness. Mine was three/iv” thick as well as I dud 2.five-iii minutes on the offset side, too only virtually a minute on the second side. You desire it RARE. Remove from heat too slice 1/four-one/ii” thick.

To assemble tacos, crush a handful of wontons on the bottom, as well as drizzle them amongst sesame soy glaze. Put tuna on height, and then slaw, and so seaweed salad, and then cusabi, and then more than sesame soy glaze. Sprinkle alongside sesame seeds for garnish.
