Tuna Banh Matzo


When I had my first Banh Mi sandwich — a Vietnamese staple, with a grilled protein, a creamy sauce, and pickled vegetables — I knew I had to make a Pesach version. This “sandwich” is sensational!


1. Place tuna on a cutting board. Season both sides well with salt and pepper.
2. Preheat a skillet over high heat; add oil, then sear tuna for one to two minutes on each side. Once cooled, slice into quarter-inch slices.
3. To assemble, spread matzo with a nice amount of Curry Lime Mayonnaise (recipe follows).
4. Add a layer of sliced tuna; top with Gefen pickled beets. You can also add cilantro, and for a hotter flavor add sliced fresh jalapeño.

Prepare the Curry Lime Mayonnaise

1. In a bowl, whisk all ingredients together; set aside.

Notes: You can get Kosher for Passover curry, but if you can’t find it you can substitute it for Kosher for Passover cumin, chili powder, or mix with some sriracha.
