With many of us making a new years resolution to eat better, I decided to share an healthy recipe with you.
- 4 tuna steaks
- 3/4 cup sesame seeds
- 3 handfuls baby arugula leaves
INGREDIENTS For Cilantro Salsa:
- 1 large clove garlic, crushed
- 2 tomatoes,seeding and diced
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- 2 tablespoons virgin olive oil, plus extra for frying
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
Cut each tuna steak into three pieces. Place the sesame seeds on a sheet of baking paper. Roll the tuna in the sesame seeds to coat. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
To make the salsa, place the garlic, ( I have found using a cheese grater to be a very easy way to cut garlic.) tomatoes, cilatro, oil, and lime juice in a bowl and mix together well. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Fill a heavy-bottomed frying pan to 1/2 inch with virgin olive oil and place over high heat. Add tuna in two batches ( be aware the oil will be hot!!!!!) and cook for 2 minutes on each side (it should be pink in the center). Remove and drain on paper towels. To serve, divide the arugula among 4 serving plates and arrange the tuna over top. Spoon the salsa on the side and serve immediately. Makes 4 servings. Recipe from Khrisitan Kritz Contributor.
