Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna
Before I went vegetarian, ahi tuna was one of my favorite dishes. It is super filling, great for you, and tastes a million times better than tuna in a can! I don’t eat canned tuna fish anymore, but even when I did in the past it was a rare occasion.
Now that I am back to my meaty ways, I had my first ahi tuna again! It was definitely as good as I remember. I like mine rare in the middle, it’s nice and juicy that way! Tuna is loaded with omega 3’s, making it a heart healthy food!
It is also a mega protein, with 25 grams in a 4 ounce serving! Plus only a gram and a half of fat, and 120 calories. Perfect for after a workout!
This is barely a recipe, but when I posted it on Instagram (follow me: SkinnyMinnieMoves) people started to drool over it! So I figured why not post?
For this recipe you will need:
-4 ounces of ahi tuna
-2 Tablespoons of white roasted sesame seeds
-1 Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
Start by heating a pan with extra virgin olive oil on high heat. This helps to sear the outside of the tuna and keep the inside rare
Mix together 2 Tablespoons of sesame seeds with some pepper
Now take your tuna and just coat the sides (dip the tuna in the seeds)
Place in the pan and cook for 2 minutes on one side… FLIP!
And then cook another 2 minutes and you’re done!!!
I topped with wasabi for a little punch. This tuna was absolutely scrumptious. Look how nice and golden brown the sesame seeds get! I will be making this quite often. Simple, yet incredible.
This was my dinner plate for the night
Dinner is my favorite meal of the day! I love coming home and making something fresh after a good gym session. Never deprive yourself of wonderful healthy foods! 🙂
