Whenever I serve these tuna tacos to friends, I always get requests for the recipe. It requires a bit of setting up, but you can put it together right before serving to your guests…or yourself.
I use sushi grade tuna for this dish, which is easily found in small frozen “bricks” at Whole Foods or similar stores.
6 Tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon pepper oil
¼ cup sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice
Chopped fresh scallions
½ lb sushi grade raw tuna, chopped into ¼-inch cubes
Finely chopped scallions
Make the topping in a bowl first, and place in the fridge. Mix marinade ingredients in a separate bowl. Chop tuna into ¼-inch cubes, and marinate in soy/oil mix for just 10 minutes, then drain. Keep it cold!
Just before serving, take a tortilla chip, place 1 tablespoon of tuna on top, top this with ½ teaspoon sour cream mixture, and garnish with chopped scallions.
Eat these quickly, before the tuna makes the tortilla soggy!
