Ahi Tuna Club

Ahi Tuna Club Prep time: 10 mins Cook time: 4 mins Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 8 oz - raw ahi tuna
  • 1 TBSP - sesame seeds
  • 8 - slices crusty bread (1/2 inch/1cm thick)
  • 1/3 cup store bought or homemade guacamole
  • 1 TBSP - reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 TSP - wasabi
  • 2 TBSP - chopped cilantro
  • 12 - thin slices plum tomato
  • 4 - pieces prosciutto
  • 1/3 cup - baby spinach leaves

Instructions

  1. 1 Dip the tuna in sesame seeds, and in a hot skillet sprayed with vegetable oil, sear the tuna for about 2 minutes per side, depending upon the thickness. The tuna will continue to cook after searing. Remove from the heat, cool, then thinly slice.
  2. 2 Toast the bread slices.
  3. 3 Combine the guacamole, mayonnaise, wasabi and cilantro. Spread over the bread slices. Place the tomato slices, prosciutto and spinach leaves on 4 slices of the bread. Add the tuna. Place the other bread slices overtop and serve.

Notes

Tips:

For those who love seared tuna, this is the perfect sandwich for you. Overcooking fresh tuna results in a dry texture.

Make Ahead:

Cook the tuna early in the day, refrigerate and slice before using. Assemble the sandwich just before serving.
