4 tacos



  • 2 tablespoons ground black pepper

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1 pound ahi tuna steaks

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 tablespoons fat-free sour cream

  • 4 (10 inch) flour tortillas, warmed

Pineapple Salsa:

  • ½ whole fresh pineapple - peeled, cored, and diced

  • ½ medium red onion, diced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, or to taste

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper

  • 2 teaspoons grated lime zest


  1. Mix black pepper, salt, cumin, garlic powder, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Rub all over tuna steaks. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, stir pineapple, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, red pepper, and lime zest for salsa together in a bowl until combined. Cover and refrigerate until needed.

  3. Heat oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add tuna steaks and cook to desired doneness, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C) for medium doneness. Remove from the skillet and slice steaks thinly.

  4. Spread sour cream in a thin layer over each warmed tortilla. Add tuna slices, top with pineapple salsa, and wrap to seal.
