Seared Ahi Tuna with Salad
(For 4 servings)
Prep time: 10 min
Cannot be frozen
What you’ll need
- 4 ahi tuna fillets, ~7 oz each
- 2 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 butter lettuce, torn into leaves
- 1 handful pitted black olives, sliced
- extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/2 lemon, juiced
- kosher salt
- freshly ground black pepper
1 Preheat a large non-stick sauté pan over a high heat until very hot; it should almost be smoking.
2 Rub tuna fillets with sesame oil and season with a little salt and pepper.
3 Sear in preheated pan for 45-60 seconds on both sides; they should be golden on the outside and still pink and raw in the middle.
4 Remove from pan and arrange on serving plates. Toss butter lettuce leaves and black olive slices with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and some pepper in a mixing bowl.
5 Serve salad on side of tuna as a garnish.
