|Albacore Tuna Taco
1/2 cup COLAVITA Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. soy sauce
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 poblano pepper, minced
1 1/2 pounds albacore tuna, cubed into 1/2 inch pieces
1 small tomato, diced
1 small red onion, diced
1 poblano pepper, minced
1/4 cup green onion tops, minced
1 tablespoon COLAVITA Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
4 tablespoons sour cream
4 tablespoons grated sharp cheddar cheese
4 large flour tortillas, warmed
In a shallow dish or zip top bag, combine the marinade ingredients. Add the tuna; coat well, and allow to marinate for 15 minutes at room temperature.
Heat a heavy skillet, preferably cast iron, over high heat. When hot; drain the tuna and add to the skillet with any marinade that clings to the fish (discard remaining marinade). Immediately add the tomato, red onion, poblano and green onion tops. Fry 1 - 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Avoid overcooking. Fish should be seared on the outside, and just pink on the inside. Stir in the olive oil, salt, pepper and cumin. Divide mixture into 4 warmed flour tortillas; top with sour cream and cheddar cheese. Serve at once.
