CRAB CAKE-CRUSTED AHI

Chef Rodelio Aglibot, Executive Chef — Sunda

Serves 4

1/2 pound lump crabmeat, preferably Dungeness

2 teaspoons fresh ginger, grated

2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped

1 tablespoon fresh chives, finely chopped

3 large egg whites

2 teaspoons cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water to make slurry

Kosher or sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper

2 (4 ounces) tuna steaks, about 1-inch thick

2 teaspoons vegetable oil

2 cups daikon sprouts or mixed greens

2 teaspoons sweet-hot mustard

1. To make crab cake mixture, combine crabmeat, ginger, cilantro, chives, bread crumbs, and 2 egg whites in a large bowl. In a little bowl, whisk cornstarch and water together with a fork to make a slurry. When cornstarch is dissolved, pour half into crab mixture, reserving rest for tuna. Fold ingredients together gently but thoroughly, taking care not to mash flaky crabmeat. Season with salt and pepper.

2. Beat remaining egg white until frothy and brush on top side of each tuna steak. Now, brush remaining cornstarch slurry over egg whites to create extra glue for crab cake to grab onto. Divide crab mixture in half and pat a layer on two pieces of tuna so it sticks and covers top. Wrap it in plastic and store in fridge at least 8 hours or up to overnight so crab and tuna can bond together.

3. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high flame, drizzle with oil, and just when it begins to smoke, lay tuna steaks in hot pan, crab-side down. Let cook for a full 5 minutes without moving tuna around, until crab cake has firmed up into a golden crust. Using a spatula, carefully flip tuna over and sear bottom side for 10 seconds, just until tuna flesh turns white. Remove from heat and place tuna on a cutting board. Cut crab cake-crusted tuna into even slices, about 4 slices per steak.

4. To serve, pile daikon sprouts on a plate and arrange tuna slices on top in a row. Dollop each piece tuna with a little bit of sweet-hot mustard.
