You won't believe how easy making seared ahi tuna at home is! Deceptively easy and so healthy.
1-1.5 lbs Ahi Tuna Steaks This is usually about 2 large tuna steaks
Ahi Tuna Marinade
3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Everything But The Bagel Seasoning
1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Tablespoon Mikes Hot Honey or regular honey
Juice of 1 lemon
3 Tablespoons coconut oil
Black Sesame seeds for garnish
In a small bowl combine soy sauce, sesame oil, everything but the bagel seasoning, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and hot honey. Whisk to combine.
In a shallow dish place your tuna steaks and pour marinade over them. Cover and let sit in the refridgerator for 3-6 hours. The longer the better!
Take out your tuna and over high heat get 3 tablesoons of coconut oil screaming hot in a cast iron pan. I use a dutch oven because the sides are tall and there is less splatter.
When the pan is very hot, lay one tuna steak down in the oil. Cook for 45 seconds -1 Minute depending on the level of rareness you like.
Flip to the other side and cook for an additional 45 seconds to 1 minute.
Remove from pan and lay on a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Repeat with 2nd tuna steak.
With a serrated knife, cut slices against the grain of the tuna.
Top with sesame seeds and sliced avocado!
