Best recipes for yellowfin tuna other than sashimi and seared?

I love yellowfin tuna but am looking for some new favorites. I love it raw as sashimi, poke or tartare and simple quick seared with an soy-sesame sauce but any other favorite recipes?

  1. Ceviche, serve it immediately after you make it.

      1. I love crudo -- raw fish with Italian flavors. There are 26 pages of recipes for crudo in The Young Man and the Sea by Pasternack and Levine. It might be available from your library.

          1. re: goodhealthgourmet

            I'll second the fish burger rec... Here's my favorite

            1 1⁄2 teaspoon olive oil
            1⁄4 cup chopped onion
            1⁄4 cup minced red bell pepper
            1 lb tuna, chopped in 1⁄4 inch or smaller dice
            1 egg, lightly beaten
            2-3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
            2 tablespoons chopped parsley
            Salt and pepper to taste (go easy on the salt, the mustard is already pretty salty)
            2 – 3 tablespoons olive oil
            Buns, lettuce, fruit salsa, mayo

            Saute the onion and bell pepper until soft in the smaller about of oil (use a large pan, you will use again to cook the burgers). Transfer to a medium bowl, and let cool. Add the fish, mustard, egg, parsley, a bit of salt and some pepper. Mix with a wooden spoon. Put a piece of plastic wrap on a plate, form 4 patties on the wrap, and cover with more plastic. Refrigerate for an hour (or at least 20 minutes, I suspect they will hold together better if let sit longer). To cook, heat a nice layer of olive oil in skillet over medium-high heat. Pan fry, flipping once, until each side is lightly brown and crispy (about 4 minutes per side).
            Serve on buns, with lettuce, and salsa, I like a little mayo too.
