Crusted Tuna with Chile-Tomato Adobo and Spicy Mango

Ingredients
1
15 ounce can petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1
cup canned red enchilada sauce
1/2
cup chicken broth or beef broth
1
tablespoon ground ancho chile pepper
1/4
teaspoon ground cinnamon
 
Dash ground allspice
2
medium fresh mangos, halved, seeded, peeled, and diced
3
tablespoons lime juice
2
tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
2
teaspoons olive oil
 
Dash salt
 
Dash cayenne
4
teaspoons cumin seed
4
teaspoons coriander seed
1 1/2
teaspoons whole black peppercorns
6
6 ounces ahi tuna steaks, about 1 inch thick
1
tablespoons vegetable oil

Directions

  1. For the adobo sauce, in a small saucepan combine the tomatoes, enchilada sauce, chicken broth, ancho chile pepper, cinnamon, and allspice. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, over medium-low heat for 15 to 20 minutes or until well combined. Keep warm.
  2. In a small bowl combine the mangos, lime juice, cilantro, olive oil, salt, and cayenne. Set aside.
  3. Using a mortar and pestle, crush the cumin, coriander, and peppercorns. Transfer to a plate. Season both sides of each tuna steak with salt; coat one side of the steaks with the pepper mixture.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add enough oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Sear the tuna, crust side-down, about 2 minutes or until brown, being careful not to let them burn. Turn and cook for 2 to 4 minutes more or until desired doneness for medium-rare.
  5. To serve, spoon 1/3 cup adobo sauce onto a plate. Place the tuna steak in the sauce, crust side-up. Top with the spicy mango mixture.

From the Test Kitchen

For a smoother sauce, puree the tomato mixture with a stick blender, adding a little more broth or water, if necessary.
