SEARED GINGER-SESAME TUNA

Ingredients:
2 (6-8 oz.) Yellowfin Tuna steaks
2 tbsp. dark sesame oil
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. of grated fresh ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1 green onion, thinly sliced (reserve a few slices for garnish)
1 tsp. lime juice

Directions:
Mix the marinade ingredients together and coat the tuna steaks with the marinade, cover tightly, and refrigerate for at least an hour. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium high to high heat. When the pan is hot, remove the tuna steaks from the marinade and sear them for a minute to a minute and a half on each side. Remove tuna from pan and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices. Sprinkle with a few green onion slices. Serve plain, with white rice, or over lettuce or thinly sliced cabbage or fennel. Makes 4-6 servings.
