Seared Tuna Saladby Captain Steve Smith on 12/29/15
This is a great recipe for a light dinner! I made this from Black Fin Tuna which I think is just as tasty as Yellow Fin.
1 lb. tuna (can be large fillets)
toasted seasame seeds
3 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons of soy sauce
4 tablespoons olive oil (for dressing)
2 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Romaine lettuce cut
carrots (spiraled or julienned)
red or green pepper slices
green onion diced
coat the tuna fillets with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, crushed black pepper and toasted sesame seeds. Prepare a hot skillet (I love my Cast Iron!) and sear each side for about 2 minutes for rare/medium rare. Let it sit for a couple of minutes and slice thinly.
For the salad whisk together the olive oil, soy sauce, rice wine vingar, pepper flakes and scallions. Apply to the salad, add tuna slices and enjoy.
