³ Description

Fish and sushi aficionados, welcome to mouth heaven. Our quick-and-dirty recipe for Sesame Crusted Seared Ahi Tuna might be the perfect meal ever created. It’s quintessentially lean; loaded with 45g of protein, healthy fats, and fiber. And it only takes 10 minutes to whip up. Get searing.

² Ingredients

  •  6 oz, boneless Yellowfin Tuna (Fish)
  •  1 cup, shredded or chopped Boston Lettuce
  •  1/2 tablespoon Coconut Oil
  •  1/2 avocado, NS as to Florida or California Avocados
  •  1 serving (serving = 1 tbsp) Blaze Balsamic Glaze
  •  1/4 serving (serving = 2 tbsp) JFC White Roasted Sesame Seeds
  •  1/4 serving (serving = 2 tbsp) JFC Black Roasted Sesame Seeds
  •  1 tbsp Black Pepper
  •  1 dash Sea Salt

q Directions

(1) In a small bowl or Tupperware, combine the black + white sesame seeds with a healthy dose of cracked pepper and sea salt (a few shakes should do). Mix everything vigorously until it’s evenly distributed.
(2) Firmly press the tuna into the sesame seed mixture. Carefully flip it over to coat the opposite side, and then fill in any gaps with a spoon — the seeds will easily stick to the tuna. It should look like this after the first side is crusted
(3) Throw 1 tbsp of coconut oil into a skillet and place it on high heat. Coconut oil is more stable at high temperatures than other oils and gives off a complementary flavor. Olive oil works, too.
(4) Once the skillet is hot, cook the tuna for about 1 minute per side. Continue to flip it until all sides are golden brown. 1 minute will sear the outside, but keep the inside rare and tender (similar to sushi). Feel free to cook it longer if you like it less rare.
(5) Slice the seared tuna into 1/2 inch cuts.
(6) Slice the avocado.
(7) Take a large plate and cover it with a bed of lettuce. Arrange the tuna and avocado on top so that it looks delicious. Drizzle the entire dish with balsamic glaze. Instagram it. Enjoy profusely. Thank me later.
