Seared Ahi Tuna

Ready in: 20 minutes
Servings: 4 people

  • 2 Tbsp dark sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce (or 2 teaspoons of wheat-free tamari for gluten-free option)
  • 1 Tbsp of grated fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 green onion (scallion) thinly sliced (a few slices reserved for garnish)
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • Mix the marinade ingredients together and coat the tuna steaks with the marinade, cover tightly, and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium high to high heat.
  • When the pan is hot, remove the tuna steaks from the marinade and sear them for a minute to a minute and a half on each side ( even a little longer if you want the tuna less rare than pictured.)
  • Remove from pan and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices.
  • Sprinkle with a few green onion slices.
  • Can serve plain, with white rice, or over lettuce or thinly sliced cabbage or fennel.
  • Shown served over sliced fennel salad.
