I love cooking and coming up with new fun and easy recipes that look really impressive but are not difficult to make. My favorite thing to do is to make good meals that are healthy, nutritious and easy for anyone to cook. This Seared Tuna Salad falls right into that category. I am a huge salmon fan. Like, it is my most favorite fish EVER. I could literally eat it everyday! Our 3 daughters love it, but my husband and our son do not like salmon. So what is a girl to do?! Buy tuna every once in a while and cook a good meal. It is all about compromise and this is definitely the answer. The peanut dressing is just so good and pairs perfectly with the broccoli salad and tuna! The best part is how easily this meal comes together and hoe the end product is so impressive!!


3-4 pieces raw tuna

1/4 cup coconut aminos

1 tsp sesame oil

3 tbsp coconut aminos teriyaki sauce

3 tablespoons of fresh ginger, grated

1/2 cup white and black sesame seeds

Combine the coconut aminos, sesame oil, teriyaki sauce and fresh ginger in a large bowl. Add the tuna and let marinate for 1-2 hours.

Remove the tuna from the marinade and place the sesame seeds on a plate. Press each piece of tuna into the sesame seeds, coating all sides. Heat a medium skillet over high heat and add a few drops of sesame oil to prevent sticking. Cook the tuna for 1-2 minutes per side, or until it is seared on each side, but still raw in the middle. Slice the tuna and serve on top of the broccoli slaw.

For the Salad:

1 bag of broccoli slaw

1/4 cup chopped Thai basil

Peanut Dressing:

1/4 cup natural peanut butter (no sugar or oil added)

1/4 cup coconut aminos

3 tbsp rice vinegar

2 tbsp fresh ginger, grated

Place the broccoli slaw in a large bowl. In another bowl, Mix together the peanut butter, coconut aminos, rice vinegar and fresh ginger. Whisk until smooth. You can add some water if needed to thin out the dressing. Pour the dressing over the slaw and add in the Thai Basil. Mix well and serve!
