Seared Tuna Salad

This salad is hearty, delicious and takes less than five minutes to make... perfect for when you get home from a long day out in the world and are SOO hungry but you still want something healthy.

Heat two tablespoons of oil in a pan. I like to use sesame oil with my tuna, but any oil will do. Get a nice thick tuna steak and coat both sides in salt and pepper (and sesame seeds if you have them). Here is a quick guide on how to tell if the tuna is fresh which is useful for this recipe where the fish is only seared and not cooked through.

While the oil is heating, dress some greens, some carrots amd some chopped mushrooms in a sesame ginger dressing. I really like this one

Once the oil is sizzling hot, put your tuna into the pan and let it sear on one side for about 30 seconds. Flip it over and sear the other side for thirty more seconds. Remove the fish from the oil an let it rest for a minute. Slice it up and place it on top of your salad and there you go. 

A gourmet salad with minimal time and effort!
