Directions

  1. Combine the papaya, onion, and red pepper in a bowl. Add the cilantro, lime juice, garlic, and hot chile paste. Toss to combine, then refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate.
  3. Brush the tuna steaks with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Whisk the eggs in a shallow bowl until smooth. Dip the tuna steaks in the egg, and allow excess egg to run off. Press into the macadamia nuts.
  4. Cook the tuna steaks on the preheated grill to your desired degree of doneness, about 2 minutes per side for medium. Serve with the papaya salsa.

My boyfriend and I were very surprised by how good this dish was. We didn't have macadamia nuts so I used finely chopped pecans. We didn't have hot chile paste so I used 1/2 chopped Jalapeno. It was delish! We will do this recipe again, no doubt!

This was a great recipe! We made it in a pan because it was raining, but it still tasted great. We had roasted sweet potatoes with rosemary as a side. This was my first time to try tuna (I am not a big fish eater) and it was great. I will definitely try it again and hopefully next time it's not raining so we can grill it.

Made this dish and it was wonderful! The nuttiness of the macadamia nuts was very interesting contrast to the Papaya salsa. I had never used Papaya for salsa before and it was very good. I added some cumin and used 2 cloves of Garlic. My Girl friend loved it also!
