This Sunday, Erin Chona from Oliveto stopped by to share her recipe for Seared Tuna Salad.Lettuce Mix 4oz.

Seared Tuna Salad

  • Vinaigrette Dressing 2oz.
  • Red onions 1oz.
  • Roasted Red Peppers 1oz.
  • Roasted Corn 1/4cup
  • Oven Roasted Tomatoes 2oz.
  • Seared Tuna 4oz. piece
  • Chipotle Mayo 1/2oz.
  • Fried Angel Hair 1/2oz.

To prepare tuna using 2 separate bowls, one for balsamic vinegar and the other for your herb mixture. You can use any combination of dried or fresh herbs. Example would be: basil, parsley, oregano with salt and pepper and garlic powder.

Dip your tuna in the vinegar and then place tuna in your herbs. Be sure to coat the tuna on all sides making sure it is covered really well.

Heat a pan with 2 ounces of olive oil, when the oil is hot, place your tuna in the oil and sear on both sides for about 20 seconds. This is a quick cook time for the tuna because Ahi Tuna is meant to be served rare or medium rare. Once your tuna is cooked, set aside.

Prepare your salad by combining your lettuce mixture with the Vinaigrette of your choice, red onions, roasted corn, and oven roasted tomatoes. Place these ingredients on to serving piece.

Place your seared tuna portion on top of salad and drizzle the Chipotle Mayo on top. Garnish with croutons, chow mein noodles or any other crunchy garnish.
