Seared Tuna Steaks

Asian-fusion Avocado Oil Cooking Delicious Fresh Green Tea Lavender Lift Flavours Recipe Sea Salt Spring dishes Steak Tuna

This dish, including the accompaniments, was called "inspired" by our good friend, Kaz.  He's quite the foodie himself, so I think he made me blush!  This is so simple, but so delicious.  Definitely worthy of company, but easy enough to put together on a Tuesday night!
Seared Tuna Steaks with Lavender & Rosemary Sea Salt

Serves 2

2 small tuna steaks (60-90 g/2-3 oz each, approximately 2.5 cm/1 inch thick)
10 ml/2 tsp avocado, grapeseed or canola oil
10 ml/2 tsp Lift Flavours Lavender & Green Tea Sea Salt
  • Rub the tuna steaks all over with the oil, then sprinkle both sides with the Lavender & Green Tea Sea Salt.
  • Heat a small cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat until just beginning to shimmer.
  • Sear the steaks for approximately 2 minutes per side, for medium-rare (you should still be able to see a pink streak through the middle; the fish continues to cook as you plate).
Serve with wasabi-spiked mashed potatoes, steamed asparagus and a surprise dollop of this blueberry-onion jam (warm the jam first)! Wine pairing:  French Chablis or Pinot Noir

~ Enjoy!
