Seared Ahi Tuna Burrito

The golden rule applies to this dish: “If it is good on its own, it is better in a burrito.” It all starts with tuna that is perfectly seared and crisp on the outside and refreshing in the inside. You get two different types of subtle heats with the crisp fresh pickled chili, and the creamy spicy mayo. Wrap it all up in a burrito with green onions and arugula and you have an epic, hand-held, oceanic umami explosion.

Tip: Remove the ribs and seeds of the chilis before pickling them for a more mellow, less spicy version.
