Yesterday I picked up some Ahi Tuna from Costco. I decided I wanted to make some of it for dinner tonight, so I did a little internet research to find a good recipe that included coleslaw (I have 2 whole heads of cabbage that I have to use…).
I came across a pretty good recipe at http://mykitchenmoovement.squarespace.com
I did a little modifying to the recipe because I was out of garlic, so I just omitted it completely. It was still very good. I also cut the recipe to 1/4 as well.
1/4 cabbage, chopped
1 carrot, peeled and shredded
1/2 cup mayonaise
1/4 up cider vinegar
3/4 teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon grated onion
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon celary salt
You may want to modify the amounts of the above once you have mixed them all together to your own liking. I actually added a bit more celary salt. Once dressing is mixed together, pour over cabbage and carrot mixture and set aside for the flavors to blend.
Heat a skillet with 1 teaspoon oil until very hot. Pat tuna dry with paper towel, coat with a bit of oil, season with salt/pepper. Sear tuna on each side. The length of time will depend on the thickness of the tuna steak. Mine was a bit thin, so I didn’t sear it for very long.
Place tuna on your favorite toasted bread/bun, top with coleslaw. I used toasted Jewish Rye bread, simply because that is what I had on hand.
