Make sure you get the freshest ahi tuna steaks and this is unbelievable! Prepare for dinner and bring leftovers to work. Luckily seared tuna has little smell, and it doesn’t need to be heated before eating so it shouldn’t disturb your co-workers.
4 oz ahi tuna
1 – 2 oz (grab a couple of handfuls.. don’t be shy here) arugala leaves
1/4 cup diced apple pieces
1/4 cup sliced cherry tomatoes
1/4 cup sliced red onion
1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
1 Tablespoon cracked black peppercorn
1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Mix black peppercorn & sesame seeds to crust the tuna. Heat a frying pan on high heat for 2 – 4 minutes until pan is HOT. Place tuna steak in the peppercorn/ sesame seed mix to create a rub for the tuna. Place tuna on one side on pan for 2 minutes until it sears the outside of the tuna steak, then flip. Tuna should be pink & warm in the middle.
Mix all other ingredients except vinegar in a bowl and toss.
Serve tuna steak on top of other ingredients, then add vinegar to salad.
