Pan-Seared Tuna with Avocado, Soy, Ginger and Lime

This recipe is another that is not new to us. We saw it cooked on Food 911 on the Food Network years ago (back when that show came on) and have been enjoying it ever since. My husband James cooked it for our Valentine’s Day meal. Enjoy.

Pan-Seared Tuna with Avocado, Soy, Ginger, and Lime
Recipe courtesy Tyler Florence

2 big handfuls fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno, sliced
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, chopped
juice of 2 limes
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Pinch sugar
Tony’s cajun seasoning, garlic powder and onion powder
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tuna steaks
1 ripe avocado, halved, peeled, pitted, and sliced

In a small saucepan, stir together the cilantro, jalapeno,ginger, garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil.  Heat to a low simmer. Place a skillet over medium-high heat and coat with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season the tuna generously with Tony’s, garlic and onion powders. Lay the tuna in the hot oil and sear for 1 minute on each side to form a slight crust. Serve the tuna with your favorite sides (we like fried rice) and top with avocado slices and drizzle with the warmed sauce.
