Ahi Tuna Sandwich with Wasabi Mayonnaise

If you love tuna, Ahi Tuna Sandwich with Wasabi Mayonnaise will interest you. I grew up eating different tuna dishes. I have had grilled tuna belly, tuna jaw (panga ng tuna in Filipino), tuna cooked in coconut milk (ginataang tuna), fried tuna, tuna soup, tuna sashimi, tuna sushi, and so on. I loved every tuna dish that I had especially raw tuna. This seared ahi tuna sandwich makes use of sushi grade tuna that are seared on both sides, but the center is left raw – just like that of a sashimi. We all know that raw tuna is best eaten with wasabi – this sandwich has it in mayonnaise form.

It took me only about 10 to 12 minutes to prepare everything. Searing the tuna is the only step that involved cooking and the rest is just basic sandwich assembly. I also saved time making wasabi mayonnaise because I used store bought wasabi mayo. These days products such as wasabi mayonnaise and the likes are readily available in most grocery stores.

I understand that most of you do not like to eat raw tuna. What you can do is to sear the tuna longer so that the inside gets cooked as well. This means that you won’t have that reddish color in the middle. If you don’t like the taste of wasabi, use the plain mayonnaise instead and try to squeeze-in a little lime or lemon to give it that fresh taste.

Reuben Sandwich

Reuben Sandwich is a type of warm deli corned beef sandwich with sauerkraut and cheese. There have been many Reuben sandwich variations throughout the years, and this is one of the basic and simple recipes around. I really enjoy having Reuben sandwich. I like how the taste of tender corned combined with the sauerkraut and cheese. The dressing (such as mayonnaise or thousand island) is a plus and makes the sandwich more pleasurable. I enjoy eating this while it is hot of the griddle. I also like to dip this sometimes with onion soup. I used cured corned beef to make this sandwich. I got the corned beef raw, so I had to boil and simmer it for about 3 hours to make it tender and sandwich worthy. All the wait was OK because I ended up with a great tasting Reuben Sandwich that everyone else loved.

Bacon and Avocado Sandwich

Bacon and Avocado Sandwich is a quick and easy meal that you can enjoy for breakfast or lunch. I thought that the bacon and avocado are a good combination especially when paired with a rich and tasty spread such as mayonnaise and Dijon mustard.

This Bacon and Avocado Sandwich have both good taste and nice texture, which were brought about by the different ingredient and the manner that they are prepared. For example, using extra crisp bacon will really give it a nice crisp texture. So when you take a bite, you first experience the delicious taste of the spread, followed by then the richness of the avocado, and then you feel the crisp bacon crunch on your mouth – releasing its entire yummy flavor. Seems like there is a Symphony of flavor going on; your taste buds will absolutely get pumped-up.

Do you know how to make the bacon extra crisp? I have 2 ways to the do that: the usual way and the lazy way. The usual way is to cook the bacon in a pan (without any oil) until it gets crisp. This entails cooking in low to medium heat for around 4 to 6 minutes per side and making sure that all the oil goes out of the bacon strip. This will take a little practice, but it works. The lazy way is to arrange all the bacon strips in a baking tray and then bake it in 350F for 15 to 18 minutes or until you see that the bacon is swimming in its own oil and looking crisp. How about you, how do you do it?

This goes well with a glass of cold orange juice or lemonade.
