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 - 2  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.
