  • 1 large, firm but ripe mango, medium dice
  • 1 medium tomato, small dice
  • 1 medium Jalapeno, seeded and diced into small pieces

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 ahí tuna steaks
  • Olive oil


Servings 2


Step 1


Combine all of the salsa ingredients in a small bowl. Stir, just enough to mix. Put into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors combine together.

Preheat barbecue grill or a stovetop grill. Lightly coat both sides of the ahi steaks with some olive oil. Place the steak onto direct heat, and cook only until grill marks form; about 3 to 5 minutes depending on how hot the grill is. Turn the steak over and cook for another 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the ahi from the heat, and set aside. Do not overcook the tuna or the flesh will become dry and lose its flavor. The steak will have a white ring around the edges and the center will be very pink when it is finished cooking. Remove from the grill. Spoon the salsa over the top. Serve. Eat.
