Step 1 Prepare marinade: Whisk orange juice, lime juice, lemon juice, red onion, habanero pepper, vinegar, garlic, and oregano together in a bowl large enough to hold the tuna steaks.

Step 2 Prepare salsa: Combine mango, red onion, cilantro, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl. Set aside.

Step 3 Prepare tuna: Sprinkle tuna with salt and pepper. Place in the bowl with the marinade and turn to coat. Marinate for about 30 minutes.

Step 4 While tuna is marinating, crush potato chips as fine as possible in a blender. Transfer to a bowl.

Step 5 Remove tuna from the marinade and press into the crushed chips until both sides are well coated.

Step 6 Heat heavy-bottomed nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add butter and heat until butter melts and foam subsides. Add tuna and sear for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Remove from the skillet.

Step 7 To serve, top tuna with chile sauce and serve with jasmine rice and mango salsa.
