Seared Ahi Tuna
Fish is a great healthy and light dish to prepare! It always keeps you energize after a meal and you get to avoid the bloated, tired, and weighed down feeling of an overindulgent meal. I don't know about you guys but I struggled with liking fish in the beginning of my cooking festivities. It smelled and tasted to... well... fishy.
I came to find that I really love those recipes that flavor the fish up so you can enjoy all of the Omega benefits it has to offer but still have it taste like you are indulging in something delicious. Marinades for fish fillets have become my friend, and I have to say this marinade is a very popular one around are household!
I love to pair this tuna over an Asian flavored salad.
Seared Ahi Tuna
Cook Time: Approx. 5 min (marinade time at least 30 min) | Servings: 2 to 4 | Calories per serving: 420 calories (for half of recipe)
2 fresh Ahi Tuna fish steaks
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp siracha mayo
1 tbs sesame oil
2 tsp garilc powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp sesame seeds
Combine all the soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a zip lock baggie. Once combined add the tuna steaks and marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or over night.
When ready to cook empty the tuna and all the sauce into a skillet on medium high heat. Cook the Ahi Tuna 1-2 minutes on each side. You want the outside to have a nice light brown sear, while the inside maintains a raw fish.
Once seared place on a plate and drizzle the siracha mayo on top. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve.
