    3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
    3 tablespoons ancho chili powder
    3 tablespoons pasilla chili powder
    3 tablespoons ground cumin
    3 tablespoons ground coriander
    3 tablespoons ground ginger
    1 tablespoon ground cloves
    1 tablespoon ground fennel seed
    2 tablespoons garlic powder
    2 tablespoons onion powder
    1 tablespoon allspice
    1 teaspoon chile de arbol
    3 tablespoons brown sugar
    2 tablespoons kosher salt
    2 tablespoons coarsely ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    4 (6-ounce) tuna steaks

    Mustard Mint Sauce, recipe follows


Combine all of the spices in a bowl. Rub 1 side of each tuna steak with some of the rub. Heat oil in a large pan over high heat. Place the tuna in the pan, rub-side down, and cook until golden brown and the spices have formed a crust, about 2 minutes. Turn over and continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes for rare doneness. Drizzle each steak with some of the Mustard-Mint Sauce.

Mustard Mint Sauce:
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoons prepared horseradish, drained
3 mint leaves, finely chopped
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
