Ahi Tuna Steaks

I am in love. Ahi tuna steaks are perhaps my new favorite food in the world (besides chocolate, of course). I made these last night, and although they are a bit pricey, I can guarantee that they will be in the rotation every 10 days or so. Plus, the added bonus is that they are so darn good for you! Eat up, I say!

(I realize the rawness of these tuna steaks isn’t for everyone.But you should at least try it once!)

So easy and so good for you!

So easy and so good for you!

Ahi Tuna Steaks

2 thick ahi tuna steaks

1 tsp sea salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper

1/4 tsp  ground ancho chile pepper

(if you like spicy try cayenne)

1 Tbs soy sauce

1 Tbs. butter

1 Tbs. canola oil

1 tsp toasted sesame seeds

Sprinkle each side of the steaks with the salt, pepper, ground chile pepper. Moisten the steaks with the soy.

Heat a large cast iron pan on medium high with the butter and canola oil. When hot, add the steaks and do not move them. Cook only 1-2 minutes per side (depending on thickness and how well you like them cooked) then..POOF… they are done.

Remove from heat and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

***Note…ahi tuna is meant to be eaten raw or very rare***

What did I love about this recipe?  I love that I learned how to make this and not be so darned intimidated by it. Faster to make than nearly any meal!
