The other day in my Sprouts post, I mentioned that they had Ahi Tuna on sale this week. I also promised to buy and try it out and post the recipe. Well here it is!!

A few years ago, Josh and I went out on a date to an adult theater. No, not that kind of theater! Shame on you!! It was a 21 and up movie theater with a full bar and offered dinner while watching your movie. It was awesome, and they really should open one here in Nashville. Anyway, I decided to try the Ahi Tuna Tacos. At that point in my life the only tuna I knew about was canned tuna. So you can imagine my surprise when my tacos come out with this huge red thing inside them. I thought it was a tomato! Seriously! Well it wasn’t a tomato, it was the tuna. And it was so good!

Since then, I have tried many delicious fish tacos(and some not so delicious), but none have quite lived up to that first one. So I stepped out of my cooking comfort zone last night, and made my own version. I don’t mean to brag, but they were awesome. Josh loved them, and even Kate tried (and liked) the tuna. The tuna was also so easy to cook, I don’t really know what I was worried about.

First I cut the tuna into about 8 pieces. I had about a pound of the tuna.


 Then, I sprinkled salt and Mexican Seasoning on all sides of the fish. Then I cooked it in melted butter and olive oil for about 1 1/2 minutes on each side. (That will be rare and the middle will still be a reddish pink, it’s ok!)
Next, I made my homemade pico/salsa.


Then, I used a little chipotle salad mix for the slaw, and added about a teaspoon of apple cider vinager to it.

Finally I warmed the tortillas in the oven at 350 for about 3-5 minutes.

I layered the fish, pico, and cabbage mix. Then I drizzled a little Marie’s Chipotle Ranch over that.

Then I sprinkled a little cheese on top. I forgot to grab one, but Avocado would have been an awesome addition!

Here is the recipe:
