  • 16 oz fresh Ahi tuna
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger grated
  • 1 green onion (chopped)


  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine all ingredients except the tuna to create a marinade.
  2. Slice tuna steaks into 4 fillets and place into marinade. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  3. Spray a large, nonstick skillet with non-fat cooking spray or an olive oil mister, and set over a medium high heat. Once the skillet is hot enough, sear the tuna steaks for a minute to a minute and a half on each side, or longer if you prefer them less rare.
  4. Remove from pan and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices. Garnish with additional green onion slices.
