Sesame Seared Tuna over a Broccoli Mushroom Tamari Stir Fry
8oz Tuna loin or steak
Roasted Sesame Seeds
1 cup Broccoli Slaw
1 Portabello mushroom, thinly sliced
1 Clove of Garlic, chopped
1 Shallot, chopped
2 tbls Light Tamari
2 Tsp Olive Oil
1 Tbl Tahini
1 Tsp Sesame Oil
2 Tbl Rice Vinegar
1 Tbl Light Tamari
1 Tbl Fish Sauce
Water to loosen if necessary (not too much)
Combine all marinade ingredients until consistency is syrupy. Marinade tuna for at least 1 hour, 3 hours max.
Heat 1 tsp of olive oil in pan. Add shallots and garlic until garlic is golden and shallots are softened. Add broccoli and mushroom. Saute for 5-10 minutes on med high heat. Add tamari and a splash of water if necessary. Cook on low for another 5 minutes.
Meanwhile coat tuna in sesame seeds. Heat 1 tsp in another pan – make sure to wait until pan is VERY hot. Add tuna and sear each side for about 45 seconds each side to cook rare (or to your liking). Remove tuna from heat and let stand for 2-3 minutes. Slice tuna in thin strips.
On a plate add the vegetable mix, sliced tuna and you can use the pan juices from both the tuna and veggies to drizzle over top. Enjoy!
