Seared Ahi Tuna with Mango Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. of Ahi Tuna steaks
  • 1 cup of diced peppers
  • 1/2 cup of diced fresh mangos
  • 2 tbs. thinly sliced green onions or chives
  • 1/4 cup grape seed oil
  • 1 TSP sesame oil
  • 1 TSP sesame seeds
  • juice of half a lemon
  • juice of half a lime
  • juice of half an orange
  • 1 TBSP fresh minced garlic
  • 1 tbs. fresh grated ginger
  • 2 TBSP soy sauce
  • 2 TBSP. apple cider vinegar
  • fresh greens (lettuce, arugula, radicchio)
  • bean sprouts
  • cherry tomatoes

Mince & chop peppers, green onions, & fruit. Mix in bowl with oils, seeds, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, wasabi, and citrus juices. Stir well. Gently Sear tuna about 3 minutes per side (don't overcook it). Arrange leaves, sprouts and tomatoes on plate. Set tuna steaks on leaves, spoon mango-pepper sauce on top.  I paired Spann Vineyards Chardonnay/Viognier with this and it was sublime.
