I made Tuna Cutlet Rice bowl with the same ingredients and it was so good and I wanted to make for my husband. Since he is not a rice person, I made sandwiches with these ingredients. He loved it so much!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sprinkle salt and black pepper over each tuna and set aside for 10 minutes. Then spread mayonnaise over each tuna, coat with panko, put on a plate, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2
Make sauce. In a shallow medium bowl or plate, mix together peanut butter, soy sauce and gochujang. Set aside.
