Kitchen Adventures: Seared Asian Tuna

Full Title: Seared Asian Tuna with Coconut Rice and Jiggy Jiggy Greens. There are a few dishes that make us high five after eating. This meal was one of them!

Ingredients: Light Coconut Milk, Basmati Rice, Lime, Yellowfin Tuna Steak, Green Tea Bags, Sesame Seeds, Olive Oil, Pickled Ginger, Green Onions, Red Chili, Grapefruit, Soy Sauce, Cilantro, Bok Choy, Asparagus, Broccolini, Sesame Oil, Garlic, Teriyaki Sauce
Full disclosure... this was not a cheap meal. Yellowfin Tuna Steak = Expensive. But Seared Asian Tuna = Worth Every Penny. I am not a good enough writer to do this dish justice. I'll try but will probably fail miserably. The coconut rice is something we've done before and this time it was still delicious. The Jiggy Jiggy Greens are made from finely slicing the greens, quickly cooking them and dressed with a little teriyaki sauce. And the star of the dish... the Yellowfin Tuna steak is coated in green tea, sesame seeds, salt and pepper, then seared for a minute each side. The shocking part was the dressing on the plate. You lay down some of the pickled ginger, green onions and chili, and squeeze the grapefruit over it. Then arrange small pieces of the tuna and top with a few drops of soy sauce. Again, I'm not a good enough writer to properly describe how delicious this meal was. We high fived quite a few times. :) 648 calories gets you a lot of coconut rice and jiggy jiggy greens, plus 3 pieces of tuna.
