I am a huge taco lover. Wrap anything up in a toasted flour tortilla and odds are i’ll eat it. These Ahi Tuna Tacos are amazing! Loaded with fresh ingredients: cilantro, radishes, cabbage and topped with seared ahi tuna. These Ahi Tuna Tacos can be made in under 20 minutes! Feel free to substitute your favorite veggies. I like anything that adds a bit of a crunch to these tacos!

The best part of these tacos is the Sriracha mayo. It’s creamy, spicy and the perfect compliment to the tuna. Adjust the amount of Sriracha you add to taste. I like it on the spicy side so I always add more.

The tuna gets seared in a hot pan until it gets a golden brown crust. Then it gets sliced into super thin slices. It’s melt in your mouth tender and full of flavor! Here’s what you’ll need to make these Tuna Tacos:

Ingredients

  • Ahi Tuna Steak

  • Flour Tortillas
  • Cabbage: To save time I used the pre shredded bagged cabbage mix.
