Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna

Before I went vegetarian, ahi tuna was one of my favorite dishes. It is super filling, great for you, and tastes a million times better than tuna in a can! I don’t eat canned tuna fish anymore, but even when I did in the past it was a rare occasion.

Now that I am back to my meaty ways, I had my first ahi tuna again! It was definitely as good as I remember. I like mine rare in the middle, it’s nice and juicy that way! Tuna is loaded with omega 3’s, making it a heart healthy food!

It is also a mega protein, with 25 grams in a 4 ounce serving! Plus only a gram and a half of fat, and 120 calories. Perfect for after a workout!

This is barely a recipe, but when I posted it on Instagram (follow me: SkinnyMinnieMoves) people started to drool over it! So I figured why not post?

For this recipe you will need:

-4 ounces of ahi tuna
-2 Tablespoons of white roasted sesame seeds
-1 Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
-pepper

Start by heating a pan with extra virgin olive oil on high heat. This helps to sear the outside of the tuna and keep the inside rare

Mix together 2 Tablespoons of sesame seeds with some pepper

Now take your tuna and just coat the sides (dip the tuna in the seeds)

I topped with wasabi for a little punch. This tuna was absolutely scrumptious. Look how nice and golden brown the sesame seeds get! I will be making this quite often. Simple, yet incredible.

This was my dinner plate for the night

Dinner is my favorite meal of the day! I love coming home and making something fresh after a good gym session. Never deprive yourself of wonderful healthy foods! šŸ™‚

Happy eating…
