Look for firm, thick tuna steaks that smell ocean-fresh for these kicked-up tacos. With a slight heat from the wasabi and the crunch of the slaw, these will become a holiday favourite to serve up many times.

WASABI MAYONNAISE
1/3 cup (80 mL) light mayonnaise
2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh cilantro
½ tsp (2 mL) wasabi

CRUNCHY SLAW
1 cup (250 mL) shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix
1/3 cup (80 mL) shredded daikon or radish
1/3 cup (80 mL) shredded carrot
2 tbsp (30 mL) rice vinegar
Pinch granulated sugar
Salt to taste

2 tuna steaks, 1½ inches (4 cm) thick, total 1½ lbs (750 g)
2 tsp (10 mL) canola oil
2 tsp (10 mL) sesame seeds
1 tsp (5 mL) coriander seeds, crushed coarsely
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
12 small corn tortillas

1 For wasabi mayonnaise: in a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, cilantro and wasabi; set aside.

2 For crunchy slaw: in a bowl, stir together cabbage, daikon, carrot, vinegar, sugar and season with salt to taste until combined. Stir in 2 tbsp (30 mL) of the wasabi mayonnaise to coat; set aside.
