INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 oz Cilantro (Coriander)
  • 3 oz Cherry Tomatoes
  • 4 medium (3/4" to 1" dia) Radishes
  • 1 medium (approx 2-3/4" long, 2-1/2" dia) Bell Peppers
  • 2 tsp Lemon Peel
  • 3/4 tsp Ginger (Ground)
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 12 oz, boneless Yellowfin Tuna (Fish)
  • 1/2 tbsp Balsamic Vinegar
  • 6 oz Arugula (Rocket)
  • 3 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper

DIRECTIONS

  1. Remove the cilantro leaves from the stems and discard. Finely chop the leaves and set aside. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half; set aside. Cut each radish into quarters; set aside.
  2. Remove the stem, pith and seeds from the red bell pepper and discard. Cut the bell pepper into ¼-inch thin strips; set aside.  Zest the lemon into a small bowl; hold.
  3. To the lemon zest, add ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper, the cilantro, ginger and cinnamon.  Stir in 2 tablespoons of olive oil and combine all ingredients well. Set aside for next step.
  4. Pat dry the ahi tuna with paper towels. Rub the lemon zest mixture onto the tuna, making sure the fish is thoroughly coated.  Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium non-stick sauté pan over medium-high heat.  Once the oil is slightly smoking, sear ahi steaks on each side for 45 seconds.
  5. Pour the balsamic vinegar into another small bowl.  Using a fork, slowly whisk while adding 1 tablespoon of olive oil.  Season with a pinch each of salt and pepper.  Place the arugula, radishes, cherry tomatoes, and red bell pepper in a large bowl. Add the vinaigrette and toss to combine.
  6. Divide the salad between two plates, and place the fish next to the salad.  Enjoy!
