Ahi Tuna Fish Tacos with Wasabi Creme and Ramen Slaw

Happy Taco Tuesday! 

Tonight for dinner I made something a little different: Ahi Tuna Fish Tacos.  I love sushi with tender tuna so these vibrant tacos were inspired by my favorite sushi. I add the sliced raw tuna to a marinade for a few minutes then add it to a tortilla along with sliced buttery avocado, crunchy Ramen Slaw, and a drizzle of Wasabi Creme. Talk about a flavor explosion! 

Ingredients: 

Makes 6 tacos

  • 8-10oz ahi tuna filet {sushi grade quality tuna}
  • 6 small corn or flour tortillas
  • 1 avocado, sliced thin
  • 1 cup Ramen Slaw
  • 3 tbsp Asian marinade of your choice, I like Mongolian or Teriyaki
  • sesame seeds, for garnish
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp wasabi paste {or more to taste}

Directions: 

Makes 6 tacos
  1. Slice the tuna into thin strips. You can also cube the tuna.
  2. Add to a bowl and toss in 3 tbsp Asian marinade.
  3. Place in fridge for 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile mix together Ramen Slaw {find the recipe here} and place in fridge to chill.
  5. Next make the wasbi creme by mixing together sour cream and wasabi paste {to taste} until smooth. Set aside. 
  6. Remove tuna from fridge and discard the marinade.
  7. To assemble: lay out 6 tortillas and spread or drizzle on wasabi creme. Top with a couple thin slices of tuna, a couple spoonfuls of Ramen Slaw, 3 slices of avocado, and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
  8. Serve right away with a side of cilantro rice and extra Ramen Slaw. Enjoy! 

Start with a large filet of sushi grade Ahi Tuna. 
Trim any visible fat then slice into thin strips.
I like to lightly toss and marinade the tuna in Teriyaki or Mongolian sauce.
Add to a bowl and toss in 3 tbsp Asian marinade.
Place in fridge for 30 minutes.
 Make the wasbi creme by mixing together sour cream and wasabi paste 
{to taste} until smooth. Set aside. 
Mix together the Ramen Slaw and chill.
