Introduction

They serve this at the Lifetime Fitness Cafe and it is AMAZING... I asked for the recipe and they printed it off for me. (I switched canned tuna for tuna steaks- I think it is less salty and fresher that way.)

The original recipe would yield 2Q so I divided everything down to yield 5 servings of 3 ounces each.

Once prepared - can be eaten as is, go on a salad, in a lettuce wrap or even on a sandwich. It is VERY spicy so beware.

Ingredients

    Yellowfin Tuna Steaks 16 oz
    Sambal Olek, 2 tbsp (Asian Food Aisle)
    Sesame Oil, 1 tbsp
    Kraft Olive Oil Mayonnaise, 4 tbsp
    Soy Sauce, .5 tbsp
    Kosher Salt, .5 tbsp
    Black Sesame Seeds, .5 tbsp
    Crushed Red Pepper, 1 tsp

    Cranberries, dried, sweetened (craisins), 0.25 cup
    Green Onion, 2 stalks - use the green part
    Carrots, raw, .25 cup, grated
    Ginger, ground, 1 tsp (raw grated is good too)
    Cilantro, raw, 2 tbsp (I also like fresh basil as a substitute)

Directions

Cook and flake the tuna steaks (or use canned). Set aside to cool.

In a medium mixing bowl, mix remaining ingredients and wisk until sauce is smooth.

Once tuna is cool, add to the sauce and toss well.

    I had the tuna at Lifetime Fitness and loved it! I used this recipe and found it needs to be "tweeked" a little. I used cannd tuna, low-sodium soy sauce, left out the Kosher salt enirely and still found it to be too salty. I will definitely make it again, but adjust the seasonings. - 3/23/10
