Sesame Ahi Tuna Wraps with Spicy Peanut Sauce

1-14 ounce Ahi tuna fillet

1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

1 1/2 tablespoons black and white sesame seeds

salt and pepper to taste

12-16 leaves Boston bibb or Butter lettuce

1 mango, pitted and sliced thin

2 large carrots, peeled and sliced into matchsticks

3 green onions, sliced horizontally

1/2 English cucumber, cut into matchsticks

1 avocado, sliced thinly

2-3 large leaves bok choy, slice thin vertically

sesame seeds for garnish

For the spicy peanut sauce:

1/4 cup natural salted peanut butter, smooth

1 1/2-2 teaspoons liquid aminos, or soy sauce (depending on salt desire)

1/2 teaspoon Srichacha

1/2 teaspoon garlic chili sauce

1 tablespoon unseasoned rice wine vinegar

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

2-2 1/2 tablespoons water

1 teaspoon honey


On a large serving platter or plate, place the lettuce leaves side by side and evenly distribute the cut vegetables and mango amongst them. On a small plate, brush all sides of the tuna fillet with the sesame oil and sprinkle with a little bit of salt and fresh ground pepper. Press the sesame seeds onto each side and sear in a small pan over medium high heat for 1-2 minutes per side (or until desired doneness). Remove from heat and let set for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients until well combined, adding slightly more water if necessary. Taste along the way for seasoning. Thinly slice the tuna along the grain and portion the pieces onto the prepared lettuce leaves. Serve along side the peanut sauce. ENJOY!
