This is a delicious recipe that we adapted from one by Tyler Florence. The combination of asian flavors explodes in your mouth but doesn't overwhelm the flavor of the tuna and avocado. It's really a fantastic combination and takes only a few minutes to prepare if you make the sauce in advance. This could be served as an appetizer or an entree.

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the cilantro, jalapeno (if using), ginger, garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, salt, pepper, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and sesame oil. Stir the ingredients together until well incorporated.
  2. Place a skillet over medium-high heat and coat with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Season the tuna generously with salt and pepper. Lay the tuna in the hot oil and sear for 1 minute on each side to form a slight crust. Pour 1/2 of the cilantro mixture into the pan to coat the fish. Serve the seared tuna with the sliced avocado and the remaining cilantro sauce drizzled over the whole plate.

      This looks awesome. I like tuna and avocado separately, and i think i will enjoy this too.
