Normally, sesame seed is a good ingredient for encrusting seared ahi tuna, but I didn't have any and used pine nuts and flax seeds instead.
IT WAS THE BOMB!!!! Sear some pine nuts and taste for yourself. The flavor just explodes and totally compliments the ahi like no other.
Seriously. Easy. Fast. Delicious.
Simply mix the marinade.
Mix nuts and seeds to coat the tuna.
Sear on a super hot griddle.
Let some of the nuts get over browned.
Rest the tuna; then slice it.
I paired the tuna with grilled mango and used some of the mango from pit trimming to make a quick chutney* to top the tuna. (recipe below)
*Quick Mango Chutney
1/2 Cup cubed mango
1/4 cup mango vinaigrette
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
Have fun and enjoy!
