Beautiful Asian Style Pan-Seared Tuna

All Asian Flavors Foods by Ri Main Coures Salads
Sliced seared tuna

A HEALTHY AND DELICIOUS TUNA RECIPE THAT IS FULL OF FLAVOR AND EASY TO MAKE.

This dish is not only beautiful but comes together in minutes!

The simplicity of this dish is what I love the most.  Straight forward, quick-cooking, and full of flavor and texture. 

I paired my tuna with cool crunchy salad greens and complimented the warm flavors of the tuna with cool and creamy avocado.  The dish was light yet satisfying.  If you are looking for a more hearty meal, the tuna would be lovely with some jasmine rice (learn how to hack your rice here), and perhaps some Asian greens or sauteed broccoli to complete the meal.

No matter how you decide to serve this tuna, the flavors won't disappoint.
