From the Kitchen: Ahi Tuna Nachos

 So recently, I have been obsessed with raw tuna. I used to never eat sushi, till one day I tried it, loved it, and have never looked back. One of my favorite local sushi restaurants is eeZ in Birkdale Village in Huntersville, NC. If you ever have a chance to go, you definitely should. Their sister restaurant, Cowfish, in Charlotte is equally as good. Anyways, I am obsessed with their Ahi Tuna Nachos. If I could eat it everyday, I probably would. I love it so much I decided to recreate it. And I'm so glad I did, because now I can get my ahi tuna fix right at home. Now, the recipe is not exact, but I think it's a pretty good dupe. See how you can recreate this restaurant meal right at home in your own kitchen.

1 1lb. Ahi Tuna steak**
1 pack of wonton wrappers (typically find near salad mix at grocery)
1-2 Avocados (depending on size)
½ Chopped Onion
½ Chopped Tomato
Sour Cream
Soy Sauce (I prefer green lid, less sodium)
Salt & Pepper
Vegetable Oil

  1. Prepare your guacamole first by slicing avocados, tomatoes, and onion. Mix and mash together. Add salt and pepper. Mix again.Taste. Add more or less ingredients depending on taste. I typically add a lot of salt and pepper. These are the only ingredients I use for my guac. I have tried other methods, but I find this simple recipe tastes best. 
  2. Next, heat vegetable oil in a sauce pan or small pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot enough (appx. 5 min.) throw in wonton wrappers. Cook 3-5 wonton wrappers at a time, depending on size of your pan. Let cook for about 1-2 minutes or until wrappers crisp. Spoon out individually on plate with paper towel.
  3. Next, sear Ahi Tuna steak over medium-high heat. Sear steak enough so that it cooks edges, but not so much that you cook the whole steak. Tuna should be rare on the inside. Remove, set aside to cool, and slice long ways.
  4. Set up cooled wontons on a plate, add Ahi Tuna slices on each individual wonton. 
  5. Add a spoonful of guac and a dollop of sour cream to each wonton.
  6. Lightly spritz soy sauce over plate of nachos, and top with salt and pepper.
  7. Taste and enjoy!

And Voila! You have Ahi Tuna Nachos you've made at home! These are perfect as an appetizer for a dinner party or serve great as a meal on their own. Let me know if you try this recipe or if you have any questions.
