Tuna Sliders with Lemon-Black Pepper Mayonnaise



    Determined Triathlete Never Lost Hope
    NBC Connecticut

    2 Fresh Tuna Steaks - 4 oz. each
    1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
    1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
    1 tsp. Lemon Zest
    1 tsp. Lemon Juice
    1 tsp. Garlic (finely chopped, mashed to a paste)
    3/4 Cup Shredded Lettuce
    1/4 Cup Finely Sliced Red Onion
    12 Small Dinner Rolls (sliced in half and warmed)
    To Taste - Salt and Pepper

    Heat a saute pan on medium high heat. Pat tuna steaks very well with a paper towel to dry. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Add olive oil to the pan and sear the tuna steaks for about 90 seconds on each side. Remove and let cool for slicing.

    Prepare the mayonnaise by whisking together the mayonnaise, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, seasoning to taste with salt and black pepper. Reserve.

    To assemble, dress the warmed rolls with the mayonnaise. Divide the lettuce and onions among the bottom rolls. Slice the tuna into 12 thin slices each. Place two slices on top of the lettuce, and finish with the roll tops. Enjoy!
