Asian tuna dog

Asian tuna dog

2 green onions, thinly sliced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 piece (1/2-inch long) ginger root, peeled, minced

Juice of 1/2 lemon

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon each: toasted sesame seeds, Asian sesame oil, olive oil

1 pound sushi-grade ahi tuna, minced

4 hot dog buns

2 tablespoons prepared wasabi mayonnaise

1/3 cup prepared kimchi

2 tablespoons pickled ginger

Makes 4 servings.

Mix the green onions, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, soy sauce, sesame seeds, sesame oil and olive oil in a medium bowl; fold in the tuna just until combined.

Lay out a square piece of plastic wrap; place one-fourth of the tuna mixture along one side of the wrap. Roll up to create a sausage; twist ends of wrap to seal. Repeat with remaining tuna mixture. Refrigerate 30 minutes.

Heat a skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat. Carefully remove plastic wrap from tuna. Cook, turning slowly, until all sides are seared, 1-2 minutes, or to desired doneness. Place the tuna dogs in buns. Garnish with wasabi mayonnaise, kimchi and pickled ginger.
