Imperial (US)
  • 5 oz sushi grade Ahi Tuna
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • dash of salt & pepper
  • non-stick olive oil spray
  • 2 oz thinly sliced avocado
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1 tbsp prepared fresh salsa
  • 1 clove garlic
  • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 cups mixed greens lettuce
  • 1/4 cup sprouts (optional)

1. Mix together chili powder, cumin, coriander, garlic powder, salt & pepper in a bowl. Sprinkle over the tuna steak and pat the spices to make a nice coating over the whole tuna, making sure to coat all sides & edges.

2. Heat a non-stick pan at medium to high heat, and grease lightly with olive oil spray (or olive oil). Sear the tuna on each side for 30 seconds to 1 minute. The outside should be just cooked while the inside is still raw. Once cooked on all sides, set the tuna aside or put in the fridge to chill.

3. For the dressing, place cilantro, salsa, lime juice, olive oil, and sugar in a food processor or blender and pulse until you get a dressing consistency.

4. Assemble the salad, put the lettuce & sprouts on a plate, slice the tuna into thin slices & layer with avocado over the lettuce. Pour dressing over the tuna & enjoy!
