Recipe Ingredients:

Soy-Mustard Sauce:
1/2 cup Coleman's mustard powder
2 tablespoons hot water
2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce

Blackened Yellowfin Tuna:
1 (8-ounce) yellowfin tuna fillet, 2-inches thick, 5-inches long
1 1/2 tablespoons paprika
1/2 tablespoon cayenne powder
1/2 tablespoon pure red chile powder
1/2 teaspoon white pepper, freshly ground
2 or 3 tablespoons red pickled ginger for garnish

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Soy-Mustard Sauce: Mix the mustard powder and hot water together to form a paste. Put aside for a few minutes to allow the flavor and heat to develop. Add the vinegar and soy sauce, mix together, and strain through a fine sieve. Chill in the refrigerator.
  2. For Blackened Yellowfin Tuna: Mix the paprika, cayenne powder, red chile powder and white pepper together on a plate and dredge the tuna fillet on all sides.
  3. Heat a lightly oiled cast-iron skillet and sear the fillet over high heat to desired doneness (about 30 seconds per side for rare, to 1 minute per side for medium-rare).
  4. Cut into 16 thin slices.
  5. For each serving, arrange 4 slices of the tuna on plate; add the Soy-Mustard Sauce on the side or over top of slices. Garnish with a small mound of red pickled ginger.

Makes 4 servings.
