Seared Ahi Tuna with Avocado, Cilantro, & Lime

We love a good tuna steak. The key is to find proper tuna steaks without white marbling.  There really is not that much to say for this dish, other than: amazing!  Please try this and you judge. The sauce is divine.

Way to go Henry!

INGREDIENTS for 4 servings

  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 3 Serrano chiles, minced (if too spicy, use only 1-2 chiles)
  • 4 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • Juice from 4 limes
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 4 (6-8 ounce) blocks sashimi-quality tuna
  • 2 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, peeled and sliced

Here is how to make this:

  1. In a bowl, combine the cilantro, peppers, ginger, garlic, lime juice, coconut aminos, salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup of coconut oil.
  2. Place a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and coat with the remaining 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Sear the tuna for a minute on each quarter. Pour half of the cilantro mixture into the pan to coat the fish.
  3. Transfer the seared tuna to plates and serve with the sliced avocado and the remaining cilantro sauce drizzled over the fish and avocado.

Wow, this dish is truly mouthwatering, and a perfect dish to serve to friends or at a dinner party. It is quick to make, and it is unbelievably pleasing, really. Enjoy this new little invention from the Nutty Kitchen, and let us know what you think! J & H
