Seared Ahi Tuna Recipe

2 (6-8 ounce) ahi tuna steaks or albacore(3/4 of an inch thick)
2 Tbsp dark sesame oil
2 Tbsp soy sauce (or 2 teaspoons of wheat-free tamari for gluten-free option) 1 Tbsp of grated fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1 green onion (scallion) thinly sliced (a few slices reserved for garnish)
1 teaspoon lime juice

1 Mix the marinade ingredients together and coat the tuna steaks with the marinade, cover tightly, and refrigerate for at least an hour.
2 Heat a non-stick skillet over medium high to high heat. When the pan is hot, remove the tuna steaks from the marinade and sear them for a minute to a minute and a half on each side ( even a little longer if you want the tuna less rare than pictured.)
3 Remove from pan and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices. Sprinkle with a few green onion slices.

can't forget the dipping sauce...

Dipping Sauce

¼ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons wasabi paste
2 teaspoons sesame oil

In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, lemon juice, wasabi paste, and sesame oil.
