This Ahi Tuna Salad with Roasted Garlic, Orange, and Balsamic Dressing has layers of flavors and textures in every direction.
1 Ahi tuna steak-7 oz (or less depending on how much you prefer)
4 cups mixed greens
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts
2 tbsp lime juice, approximately 1 lime
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 small stalks green onion, sliced thin
1 parmesan crisp
- Prepare a plate with sliced green onion. Divide half of it and place it on the plate while leaving the other half to top the tuna with once it's finished cooking. On medium heat, cook tuna, searing for 1-2 minutes on each side. Cook time can vary depending on preferred level of rareness. Place hot tuna on plate with sliced green onion and use the other half of the onion to top tuna. Let tuna rest for a few minutes before slicing with a sharp knife.
- Combine all other elements into a bowl. Top with parmesan crisp.
