The Best Seared Tuna Ever

Yes, that's right, the best. In fact, if you prefer (or just can't wait), this marinade can also be used for sushi. Either way, it's delicious.


* 2 big handfuls fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
* 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
* 1 garlic clove, grated
* 2 limes, juiced
* 2 tablespoons soy sauce
* Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
* 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

* 1 (6-ounce) block sushi-quality tuna per person
* 1 ripe avocado, halved, peeled, pitted, and sliced


To make the marinade, combine the cilantro, ginger, garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, salt and pepper, and olive oil in a bowl. Whisk.

Slice the tuna and brush it with marinade. Let sit for 5-10 minutes.

Lightly sear the marinaded tuna in a pan or on the grill, then remove from heat and add any remaining marinade.

Serve with sliced avocado.
