I'm always looking for a new and tasty way to eat tuna and came up with this a few days ago (I doubt if its new to the world, but its new to me). Anyway, its a "BLTT"; a "Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato and Tuna" sandwich.

Basically, slice up some tuna about 1/2" thick (or a little more) and cook it somewhere between a sear and fully cooked, call it "rare". I did it in the frying pan after cooking the bacon so that the bacon grease did double duty by both flavoring the tuna and letting it release from the pan easily. The tuna is main protein here, the bacon is more for flavor. Because commercial bacon is salty, you can use less salt than normal on the tuna slices.

The sandwich was better on a good roll than slices of bread. Variations could include adding avocado or using siracha mayo. Tasty, easy and pretty quick, and good for eating while watching the game of your choice. Might even be good with a beer. :ele:

I LIKE IT. I think i would go with a thinner 1/4 cut of tuna, and give it a quick sear on both sides. Thanks for the idea.

I'm going to try this for sure with the avocado and siracha

Put me down as judge between Brad and Victor. I hate to say it Brad bud, but I'm leaning towards Vic at this point based on the pictures! Of course, I'd have to try both at the same time to be sure! I'll even bring the soy and wasabi!


Next time I will invite you and Brad over to my house. For this goodies. Just waiting on my container shipment of hamachi from Japan and my other container shipment if abalone from down south. Salmon is from Faroe Island. BFT is from our local SCI water.
