      Cook for longer than 10 sec on each side, and it's NOT seared.

      Awesome! Just what I was looking for. I'm new to the fish world and had something like this in a restaurant. I sliced mine paper thin and put it on a bed of greens with mandarin oranges, pecans, red bell pepper and a ginger dressing. OMG!
