Tuna with a Mustard Seed Crust

tuna with mustard seed crust

This recipe was so light and delicious! Sushi grade tuna steaks coated with just the right flavor & seared to perfection. YUM!

  1. In a small bowl combine: 1/2C crushed mustard seed*, 1t salt & 1/2t ground pepper  -blend & spread the mixture on a plate
  2. Using a sharp knife slice each tuna steak into long pieces (around 1/2″ wide)
  3. Gently place each tuna piece into the mustard mixture so it adheres on all sides
  4. Grab a large skillet & spray with cooking oil & 1T EVOO – place over medium heat, let stand til oil begins to crackle
  5. When skillet is ready place tuna in pan & sear on both top and bottom sides for roughly 1-5minutes (it really depends how rare you want it) – make sure the mustard does not burn, we want a golden hue
  6. Remove from heat & plate

I served this dish with pickled ginger (the hubs can’t go without) & a side of broccolini with shiitake mushrooms. The veggies steamed in a mix of 1/3C Braggs & 1t minced garlic & ginger for 2 minutes.

Quick, easy & very delicious!
