Delicious & Easy Tuna Bites

Have you ever made something crazy-simple and people go nuts for it?  Like ser-i-ously nuts!  

If you do…What is it? I need to know!

I mean, you can spend 2 hours on a dish (or more) and think it is perfection, right? Then  ehhh, no one really says anything. But then…you throw something together in literally 10 minutes and its talked about and requested for years!  Am I right? What the heck people, lol! 

These Tuna Bites are spicy and deliciously spectacular!
The better the tuna, the better the bite!  

3 ingredients to make the Tuna Bites and 5 to make the sauce, if you choose to use it. It doesn’t get much easier than that.

I threw it together as an additional offering years ago at a summer BBQ we hosted, it may have been on the 4th of July and everyone loved it!  So many people have asked how to make them or asked to have me make them for them ever since.

I swear its always the easy dishes that get people! 

Blackened Tuna Bites

Call them blackened, call them spicy…whichever, I  just call them good! 

Tuna Bites
Serves 2-3
1 pound piece good quality tuna steak
2 TBS grapeseed or olive oil
3 TBS Paul Prudhomme Seafood Magic (used above) or Blackened Seafood Magic or whichever blackening seasoning you enjoy best

Lightly coat your tuna in a bit of oil.  Cut the tuna steak into bite sized cubes.  Gently pres tuna cubes down into the seasoning mixture and coat all sides with it.  Place coated tuna pieces on a plate.

Heat 1 1/2 – 2 TBS of  oil in a non-stick griddle or skillet until very hot but not smoking. Place tuna pieces into the pan and cook over high med-heat until each side of the cube is cooked and golden brown/blackened. You need to move quick so the tuna doesn’t cook all the way through.  Total cook time should not exceed 2 minutes if you still want your tuna pink inside.  If you want it rarer, you need to cook it even less. Remove each tuna piece (based on size) as soon as it is done and plate.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 TBS relish
Few dashed Worcestershire sauce
A squeeze of fresh lemon juice
A dash or two of Cayenne pepper

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and mix until smooth and creamy.

Eat the tuna alone or with some of the sauce…either way, enjoy!
