Memorial Day marks the beginning of warmer weather, outdoor entertaining, and the grilling season. This recipe is a fast cooking, healthy alternative, and easy to recreate at home al pastor style taco. Meaty fish is every bit (we think even more so) as satisfying as the original Al Pastor Mexican dish made with thinly sliced pork that has been seasoned with chili peppers and pineapple and roasted on a vertical spit, and instead of being ready in hours, is ready in minutes.
When we have guests, we like to put the excess marinade (reserved from the bag the tuna was marinating in), the pineapple salsa, tortillas, and tuna out on a platter for a grill your own experience on the OFYR. Slices of avocado (with lime juice squeezed over them to preserve their color) and some pretty fresh cilantro micro greens make for festive presentation.
Serve with a bucket of crisp delicate lager or a brisk hoppy pilsner and visions of a beach in Cancún are certain to cross your mind.
