Asian Style Pan-Seared Tuna

Pan seared tuna on salad

A HEALTHY AND DELICIOUS TUNA RECIPE THAT IS FULL OF FLAVOR AND EASY TO MAKE.

You can pair the tuna with cool crunchy salad greens or complement the warm flavors of the tuna with cool and creamy avocado. The dish was light yet satisfying. If you’re looking for a more hearty meal, the tuna would be lovely with some jasmine rice (learn how to hack your rice here).

No matter how you decide to serve this tuna, the flavors won't disappoint.
