This is a simple, very delicious recipe for tuna lovers. The recipe includes cilantro-lime marinated Ahi Ahi tuna steaks served with a light sour cream sauce and fresh arugula.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Ahi Ahi tuna steaks (Sushi grade)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • 1 garlic clove sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Sour Cream Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 small jalapeno chopped (optional)

Directions:


Mix together cumin, garlic powder, paprika and some pepper. Then brush the steaks with olive oil and add the dry-rub seasoning to both sides, place the steaks in a bowl and squeeze the juice of two limes, add chopped cilantro and slivered garlic. Cover the tuna with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.


Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and add oil. When the skillet is hot, add the tuna steaks and sear for 3-4 minutes. Turn gently with a spatula and cook on the other side for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice ¼-inch thick slices and enjoy with sour cream sauce and fresh arugula.
