Recipe: Grilled Wagyu Tongue Tacos with Avocado Salsa


  • 1 Wagyu tongue
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Corn tortillas
  • For the Avocado Salsa:
    • 1 ripe avocado, diced
    • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
    • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped
    • Juice of 1 lime
    • Handful of fresh cilantro, chopped

  1. Fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil. Add the Wagyu tongue and let it simmer for about 2 hours or until tender.

  5. Place the seasoned tongue on the preheated grill. Grill for about 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally, until nicely charred and heated through.
  6. Remove the tongue from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Slice it thinly across the grain.
  7. To make the Avocado Salsa, combine the diced avocado, red onion, jalapeño pepper, lime juice, and chopped cilantro in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Warm up the corn tortillas on the grill or stovetop.
