Sesame Crusted Ahi with Ginger Garlic Sauce
Serves: 3
  • 1 lb sushi grade ahi tuna
  • sea salt, to taste
  • fresh pepper, to taste
  • 3 tbsp white sesame seeds
  • 3 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • sliced avocado, optional
  • arugula, optional
  • Ginger Garlic Sauce:
  • ½ tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • ½ cup coconut aminos
  1. Season the tuna with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix the sesame seeds together and pour onto a plate.
  3. Coat the tuna in sesame seeds. Set aside.
  4. Heat a greased pan over medium heat for about 5 minutes. I spray mine with Avocado Oil in my Misto Sprayer.
  5. Place the tuna on the (hot) pan and cook for 2 minutes per side.
  6. Remove from heat. Slice and serve. I serve it over a bed of arugula with sliced avocado.
  7. For the sauce: Place all ingredients in a small pan and cook over medium heat for about 3-5 minutes, or until heated through and simmering.
Pictured above with grilled asparagus. I make the Ahi using a large grill pan and use half for the asparagus and half for fish.
