Seared Ahi Tuna

If you're tired of eating chicken and plain tuna, try this very easy to make and absolutely delicious dish.



  1. Mix balsamic vinegar, garlic, soy sauce ginger, green onion and lemon juice in a large bowl.
  2. Marinade the tuna steaks, cover them tightly in the bowl and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  3. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high to high heat. When the pan is hot place the steaks in the skillet and sear them for 1 minute to 1 1/2 minutes each side.
  4. Remove from pan and slice them as you wish.
  5. Note: you can top with lettuce, vegetables or brown rice. I used steamed asparagus.

We reduced the ginger to less than 1 tsp and used Mahi Mahi since Ahi is so expensive. We also cooked it all the way instead of pan searing it *Mahi taste funny when it is seared only. BUT the recipe is delicious!

I also used the rice wine vinegar as I am not a big fan of balsamic. It was awesome. My husband loved it too. Thanks for the great recipe. We have added this to our list of favorite dinners.

This was really delicous! I used Japanese rice wine vinegar instead of balsamic and served on a bed of green beans with rice and Japanese style pickled vegetables.
