Serving Size: Serves 4 (appetizer portions) Ingredients
  • 1 lbs Ahi Sushi Grade Tuna
  • 1 1/2 tsps Salt
  • 1/2 tsps Black Pepper
  • 1 tsps Sesame Seeds (white or black)
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • 1 tsps Lemon Juice (fresh)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Season your tuna on both sides with salt, pepper and sesame seeds. Heat up a grill pan (one with raised grill marks to create the beautiful hatch lines on the outside of your tuna).
  • Once the pan/griddle is smoking hot, spray a little non-stick cooking spray and lay your tuna steak down - sear about 2 minutes, then turn 45 degrees. Sear another two minutes. Flip the steak over and repeat the same process on the other side.
  • Let rest while you create your avocado salad. Mash up your avocado, lemon juice and salt. Lay down four equal portions of avocado salad on each plate in a line. Slice up your tuna steak into 1/4" slices and lay over your avocado salad. Garnish with Kimchi Mayo (recipe below). You can also serve this with a spicy mayo *just combine mayo and a little sriracha to taste.
