This gluten free pecan crusted tuna with mango salsa is so fantastically delicious! You could serve it as an appetizer or as the main course!
I Know What You Should Be Making For Dinner Tonight!
Delicious Pecan-crusted Tuna with mango salsa! That’s what you should be having for dinner! It is so easy to make and is definitely a weeknight-to-date night meal.
If you don’t have tuna fillets on hand you could also substitute the fish with any light fish you like. Mahi Mahi would also be yummy!
You could make this meal go further by serving the pecan crusted tuna with mango salsa over some rice, cauliflower rice, a big salad, or with any veggie you like. Just seeing this photo makes me want to make this for dinner tonight.
Here’s What You Will Need to Make This Tuna with Mango Salsa:
1 Ahi Tuna Steak per person- depending on the size of the fillet:)
2 Mangos that are ripe
1 Handful of Cilantro
1 Red Onion
Salt and Pepper
First, you will need to toast the pecans in a pan until they are fragrant and set them aside. If you try to chop them when they are hot you could burn your fingers…. and that would slow you down from eating this delicious pecan crusted tuna with mango salsa.

I personally like the chef snack part of the video :)
The salsa is mangos, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, and SNP. Mix it all together and set it aside.
Once the pecans are cooled, chop them super fine so they will stick to the fish.
Take the fish out of the fridge and pat it dry with a paper towel.
Press the fish into the pecans and SNP. Coat it on all sides.
Fry the fish in a hot skillet until seared on each side- about 2-3 minutes depending on how rare you like your fish.
Let the fish rest for a few minutes so you don’t burn your fingers. Like I stated above this will slow you down from eating this delicious pecan crusted tuna with mango salsa.
Slice the fish against the grain and layer it on a plate.
Spoon the mango salsa over the top.
Now the best part……enjoy eating it!
