This recipe takes inspiration from one of our favourite restaurants, Contramar, in Mexico City. It is the perfect lunch spot, serving uber-fresh seafood nestled away in the Roma district. Its tuna tostada is an unforgettable dish for those who have been there.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient

For the tuna

Quantity Ingredient
500g sashimi-grade tuna, sliced across the grain into roughly 60g portions
4 limes, juiced

For the soy glaze

Quantity Ingredient
100ml soy sauce
100ml sake
100ml mirin
100g granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cornflour
1 tablespoon water

For the jalapeños

Quantity Ingredient
50g unsalted butter
3 jalapeño chillies, sliced thinly into rings

To serve

Quantity Ingredient
8 tostadas
4 teaspoons Chipotle mayonnaise
1 avocado, sliced
1 tablespoon white sesame seeds
1 lime, quartered

Method

  1. To make the soy glaze, combine the soy sauce, sake, mirin and sugar in a pan and cook on a medium heat for 3 minutes. Mix the cornflour and water in a small bowl, add to the soy mix and stir until thickened. Remove from the heat.
  2. To make the jalapeños, put the butter into a pan with the jalapeños and cook on a low heat for 5 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  3. Put 2 tostadas on each serving plate. Place ½ teaspoon of chipotle mayonnaise and a slice of avocado on each tostada.
  4. Put the tuna into a bowl and pour over the lime juice, mixing it through to ensure all the pieces are covered. Take 2 slices of tuna, dip into the soy glaze, then place on each tostada. Place a few jalapeños on each slice of tuna and sprinkle over some sesame seeds.
  5. Give the tostadas a further squirt of lime juice and serve.
