Pan Seared Sesame Tuna with FM Vegetables - serves 4
I don't cook tuna often, but Whole Foods had it on sale so I grabbed 2 fillets, contemplating how great it would feel if I could just lie on ice with them. These are really easy to do and it requires very little ingredients. Add a fresh corn, red onion and spinach salad and you have a great dinner prepared. The meal literally takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. If only the heat of the summer would follow suit.
2 Ahi tuna fillets
2 tbs black sesame seeds
2 tbs white sesame seeds
1/2 tbs sea salt
Mix the black and white sesame seeds with salt in a shallow dish. Heat a large stainless steel pan over medium heat. Add one fillet at a time, to the dish, coating with seeds. Add to pan and sear about 1 minute, then flip, searing a minute more. Repeat with other fillet. (If you want it more cooked through, add more time.)
Slice tuna with the grain, and serve with your favorite salad.
