Tuna Bites
  • ½ pound good quality fresh tuna steak
  • Sesame oil, for brushing
  • Montreal steak seasoning, for sprinkling
  • Round wonton wrappers
  • Mango Salsa
Avocado-Basil Sauce:
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 2 frozen basil cubes
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Spicy Mayo:
  • 4 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Pinch paprika
Lime Aioli:
  • 4 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • Juice and zest of ½ lime
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Prepare the wonton chips. Place wonton wrappers on a parchment lined baking sheet. Spray with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 6 minutes.
  3. Prepare the salsa. Combine all ingredients. This can be done ahead.
  4. Prepare the tuna. Slice into rectangle shapes. Brush tuna with sesame oil and sprinkle with Montreal steak seasoning.
  5. Grease a frying pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add tuna and sear, for just a few seconds until only the surface is cooked but not any of the inside. Flip and repeat on other side and remove from pan. Slice into rectangle-shaped slices.
  6. Prepare the sauces. For each sauce, combine all ingredients. For the avocado sauce, you’ll need a small blender.
  7. Have fun with the presentation! Place a little of the salsa on the wonton chip, top with a tuna square, then some aioli, them drizzle with sauces. I like to assemble these on a parchment-lined baking sheet and drizzle away. Then I remove the tuna bites, discard the parchment, and place them on a clean platter.
