Blackened Sesame Tuna with Asian Greens

I purchased a bag of individually vacuum packed Albacore Tuna last week and have been having fun coming up with recipe ideas like today's Blackened Sesame Tuna.

Served over an Asian style salad with my signature Asian dressing and you have a memorable lunch or dinner that is as good as anything you will have at a restaurant.

Please enjoy my quick how to video or visit the printable recipe for this dish: Blackened Sesame Tuna with Asian Greens

Blackened Sesame Tuna with Asian Greens

  • 2 Albacore tuna filets
  • 2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp coarse grind black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 4 cups mixed salad greens
  • 2 chopped green onions
  • 1 diced stalk celery
  • 1 diced avocado
  • 1 small tin drained mandarin oranges
  • 1 cup roasted cashews
Asian Dressing
  • 1/4 cup un-refined safflower oil
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  1. Mix the sesame seeds, salt, pepper, garlic, and coriander together in a shallow dish and dredge the tuna coating both sides.
  2. Mix the dressing ingredients together in a mason jar and shake well. 
  3. Heat the coconut oil in a large non stick pan over medium high. Sear the tuna 2-5 minutes per side depending on how done you like it drizzling each side with a little of the Asian dressing.
  4. Let the tuna rest 5 minutes.
  5. Mix the salad ingredients together and drizzle with some of the dressing. (you won't be using all of the dressing - it can be saved in the refrigerator for up to three weeks)
  6. Divide the salad in two and top each with the seared tuna and another drizzle of salad dressing.
