Ingredients
Seared Ahi:
Salad:
  • 5 ounces mixed greens*
  • 1 ripe mango peeled and diced
  • ½ ripe avocado diced
  • 1 small heirloom tomato diced
  • ¼ red onion thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup Frontier Co-Op crystallized ginger chopped
Creamy Wasabi Dressing:
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil**
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon liquid aminos***
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste
  • 1 teaspoon agave nectar or honey
Instructions
Prepare the Seared Ahi:
  1. Heat a cast iron skillet to medium-high with enough oil to coat the surface, about 2 tablespoons.
  2. Stir together the ground cumin, smoked paprika, turmeric, cloves, and sea salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle both sides of the ahi fillet with the spice blend.
  3. Carefully place the ahi fillet on the center of the surface of the hot skillet. Cook 1 to 1-½ minutes, or until the fillet is golden-brown and crispy. Flip and cook on the other side for 1 to 1-½ minutes, or until tuna reaches desired done-ness. Transfer to a cutting board and allow fish to cool. Once cool enough to handle, cut the tuna into strips. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Prepare the Creamy Wasabi Dressing:
  1. Combine all of the ingredients for the dressing in a small blender. Blend until completely smooth.
Prepare the Salad:
  1. Add all of the ingredients for the salad in a large serving bowl. Toss in desired amount of creamy wasabi dressing. Serve salad with seared ahi tuna on top.
