My husband loves rare tuna so I thought I would treat him tonight.  Last night we had turkey which is not his favorite.  This is a fast meal to prepare.  From start to finish it took me 15-20 minutes.  Prepping the vegetables takes the longest.

2 organic baby bok choy cleaned and sliced
1 stalk of organic celery sliced thin on angle
1 organic onion sliced
1 organic carrot julienned
1 tsp lemon grass
1 tsp black sesame seeds
1 tsp sesame seeds
1 tsp Wheat Free Soy Sauce
1 TB Virgin Coconut Oil
2 tsp canola oil

Directions:

Prep your vegetables.  After you heat the pan on medium high and get the oil hot add just the onions.  Once they are transparent add the remaining vegetables.  When they wilt down add the seasonings.  The two of us ate all of these vegetables.

As they are cooking you can start the tuna.  Keep in mind if you like it rare you only need to cook it approximately 2 min each side.  I like my tuna cooked so it’s the first in the pan and the last out.

Sesame Crusted Tuna


Ingredients:

2-4 Tuna steaks
Black sesame seeds
Regular sesame seeds if you want contrast
2 tsp Virgin Coconut Oil

Directions:

Heat your pan on medium high with the oil.  While that is heating rinse your tuna steaks.  Pour the sesame seeds on to a plate.  Press the tuna into the seeds.  Turn over and repeat.  Gently place the tuna into the hot pan.  For rare tuna 2 minutes each side.  I cooked mine 5-6 minutes on the first side and just a few on the other so it was cooked through.  You be the judge of how rare you want it.

I served this with more soy sauce and rice that I had cooked previously.  Remember make a nice big batch when you are cooking rice.  It saves well and is great with many dishes.
