Seared Ahi Tuna

Ingredients 2 (6-8 ounce) ahi tuna steaks (3/4 of an inch thick) 2 Tbsp dark sesame oil 2 Tbsp soy sauce 1 Tbsp of grated fresh ginger 1 clove minced garlic 1 green onion (scallion) thinly sliced (reserve a few slices for garnish) 1 teaspoon lime juice Preparation Mix the marinade ingredients together and coat the tuna steaks with the marinade, cover tightly, and refrigerate for an hour minimum. Heat a non-stick pan 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 (a little longer if you want the tuna less rare.) Remove from pan and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices. Sprinkle with a few green onion slices. Recipe inspired by Elise Bauer,
