Ahi Tuna Steaks
This is usually about 2 large tuna steaks
Ahi Tuna Marinade
Everything But The Bagel Seasoning
Mikes Hot Honey
or regular honey
Juice of 1 lemon
Black Sesame seeds for garnish
In a small bowl combine soy sauce, sesame oil, everything but the bagel seasoning, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and hot honey. Whisk to combine.
In a shallow dish place your tuna steaks and pour marinade over them. Cover and let sit in the refridgerator for 3-6 hours. The longer the better!
Take out your tuna and over high heat get 3 tablesoons of coconut oil screaming hot in a cast iron pan. I use a dutch oven because the sides are tall and there is less splatter.
When the pan is very hot, lay one tuna steak down in the oil. Cook for 45 seconds -1 Minute depending on the level of rareness you like.
Flip to the other side and cook for an additional 45 seconds to 1 minute.
Remove from pan and lay on a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes. Repeat with 2nd tuna steak.
With a serrated knife, cut slices against the grain of the tuna.
Top with sesame seeds and sliced avocado!
This is also delicious with siracha mayo and a cabbage slaw.
