In This Recipe
Thinly slice 3 scallions and put aside.
Using a sharp knife, trim the tuna into a clean rectangle. Next, slice 1/2-inch thick 'fillets' from the larger piece of fish. Taking those 'fillets', slice into 1/2-inch wide strips, and then dice up to make 'cubes'. Add to a small bowl and reserve.
Add the sriracha, mayonnaise, & gochujang to the tuna, along with the sliced scallion. Give a quick stir and let sit for 1 minute to meld the flavors.
