I ♥♥♥ seared ahi tuna salad and I also ♥ sriracha, so I made seared sriracha ahi tuna salad at home. It’s super easy and delicious! Honestly, I tend to worry when I cook fish because of the fishy taste, as some fish are a challenge to cook.
Making Seared Sriracha Ahi Tuna Salad With Frozen Ahi Steaks From Target, Yes, Target!
When visiting Target the other day, I was surprised to find that they had frozen ahi steaks of all things. It’s amazing what you find when shopping at Target, I’m telling you.
I love Target! But, I bet most moms do!
That’s where I got the tuna steaks. But if you decide to make seared sriracha ahi tuna salad, please get fresh ahi. Otherwise you have to thaw it out and fresh ahi just tastes better. Don’t get me wrong the tuna steaks come vacuum-sealed regardless; I will be getting fresh Ahi in the future.
Customize Your Own Veggies!
Anyway, I went crazy on the veggies for your seared sriracha ahi tuna salad. You can choose whatever you like. But, here’s what I put on mine if you haven’t already watched my video.
Seared Sriracha Ahi Tuna Salad Ingredients:
- Raw Tuna Steaks (1 per person)
- Mixed Greens (Tasty on baby spinach too)
Veggies & Salad toppings
- Artichoke Hearts
- Red Bulgur
- Hard boiled eggs
You need enough for each salad and can gauge how much that is for you. Some people love to pile on the veggies, like me. When it comes to making seared sriracha ahi tuna salad or any other salad, there isn’t a hard fast rule. I know some people are die-hard-measure-everything-types.
I’m not. Obviously. Ha ha ha
You want to make sure the tuna steaks are thawed out before putting them on the pan. I used sriracha and citrus ponzu sauce, that’s it and no, I’m not going to instruct on the amount because everyone is different. You might like it with a little sriracha or a lot. It depends on the level of spice your palate can handle. The same goes with the citrus ponzu sauce. Not everyone likes sour, so both ingredients are optional.
Sear the ahi on high until both sides are nice and seared.
WARNING: Don’t over-cook or it won’t be seared sriracha ahi tuna salad!
