Pan Seared Tuna

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by CelestialShannon

I don't know if any of you have friends that won't eat 'raw' fish but I've conformed a bunch of my leary friends after they had this extremely rare tuna which was described by them more like a steak. Lots of oooos and ahhhhs. I like to add Asian Seasoning in the sauce also from the Pampered Chef line. Very Good and do not over cook the tuna, should be rare. I usually serve this as an appetizer but would make a great meal too!

Hm... afraid I didn't have such a good experience as the other reviewers. I thought there was too much soy sauce, not enough lime. I will go for something simpler and lighter next time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the cilantro, jalapeno, ginger, garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, salt, pepper, and 1/4 cup of olive oil.
  2. Stir the ingredients together until well incorporated.
  3. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat and coat with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil.
  4. Season the tuna pieces generously with salt and pepper.
  5. Lay the tuna in the hot oil and sear for 1 minute to form a slight crust; flip and sear the other side 1 minute. I use a timer.
  6. Pour half of the cilantro mixture into the pan to coat the fish.
  7. Transfer the seared tuna to plates and serve with the sliced avocado and the remaining cilantro sauce drizzled over the whole plate.
