Marinated Seared Ahi Tuna

Ingredients:

2 4 ounce pieces Ahi Tuna

1/4 cup Mango/Orange Juice

1/4 cup Soy Sauce

1 tablespoon Lime Juice

1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 tablespoons Cilantro, roughly chopped

1 clove Garlic, crushed

1 scallion, root trimmed and roughly chopped

1 scallion, thinly sliced for garnish

Salt, to taste

Black Pepper, to taste

Directions:

In a bowl, whisk together mango juice, soy sauce, lime juice, olive oil, cilantro, garlic, and roughly chopped scallions. Season tuna with salt and pepper and place in the bowl with the marinade. Turn the tuna gently a few times to coat in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Heat a small amount of oil in a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. When the oil is simmering, add the tuna to sear. Sear on all sides for 2-3 minutes each. When finished searing, slice into 1/4 inch slices. Serve and garnish with scallions.
