- Seared Ahi Tuna Bites
- 1/2 pound ahi tuna, cut into about 1 sq. in strips
- 1 cucumber, sliced
- 1/2 cup guacamole
- Toasted sesame seeds for garnish (optional-I forgot them!)
In a baking dish (8×8) or gallon bag, combine ginger, garlic, soy sauce, sesame oil, lemon juice, lime juice, and tuna. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Heat skillet on medium high heat until hot. Place tuna pieces in pan and cook 30 seconds on each side until just brown. (You want the tuna to remain raw inside.) Remove from pan and let cool. You can refrigerate the tuna at this point until serving time. When ready to use, slice into 1 cm slices.
Combine mayo and sriracha – adjust heat to your liking.
Layer each bite: Cucumber slices, dollop of guacamole, slice of tuna, drop of sriracha mayo. Serve chilled.
