I’m excited to share this refreshing and EASY summer dish—Seared Tuna Tacos. Seared tuna takes just a couple minutes to cook and is a tasty way to switch up your taco night. My family devoured this meal, and we discovered it’s still pretty darn good leftover the next day.
Oh, how I love warm weather food. What yummy recipes have you been cooking this summer? I’d love to hear in the comments below!
Where to Find Tuna Steaks
I’ve had a lot of luck finding mine at Fresh Market or Whole Foods. If you don’t have one of those stores around you, I would look at your local farmers’ market or grocery store and be sure to look for REAL seafood. I’ve also purchased from ButcherBox before when I couldn’t find anything local.
How to Sear Tuna Tacos
It doesn’t take long at all to sear the tuna, so make sure you don’t overcook it. Place the tuna in a pan with oil and sear on each side for only 2 to 3 minutes. You want it to be mostly pink in the middle.
Side Dish Ideas for Tuna Tacos
It paired perfectly with the homemade slaw and some fresh mango on the side.
