Yield
4 servings (serving size: 2 filled tacos and 1 lime wedge)

This is a great dish for a casual supper; let everyone assemble their own tacos.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; sprinkle the spice mixture evenly over both sides of tuna.

Step 2

Heat a grill pan over high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add tuna; cook 2 minutes on each side or until medium-rare or until desired degree of doneness. Cut tuna into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

Step 3

Warm tortillas according to package directions. Divide tuna evenly among tortillas; top each with 2 tablespoons avocado, 1 tablespoon onion, 1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro, and 3 jalapeño slices. Top each with 1 teaspoon sour cream. Serve tacos with lime wedges.

We love this recipe and have been making it for a few years now. I always get fresh tuna and I double the rub to make sure there is enough to coat the fish. The ingredients seem simple but they all go so well together. The pickled jalapeno is the key to their awesome flavor so if you don't like spicy, don't bother. I use ff yogurt instead of sour cream as well. We use soft corn tortillas which we only seem to find at trader joes, they have these corn/flour tortillas that work very well.

Not that great. Although we did use Whole Foods frozen tuna. The dish is lacking something. If you're looking for good fish tacos, the "grilled shrimp tacos" are outstanding. We followed instructions and I would not make this recipe again.
