Healthy & delicious simple seared Ahi Tuna

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!
