Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) sushi-grade ahi or yellowfin tuna steaks*, about 1-inch thick
  • 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 plus 1/8 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  • 6 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar snap peas, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted

Preparation

  1. 1. Rub tuna steaks with 1 teaspoon olive oil; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. 2. For the dressing, combine lime juice, honey, remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil, sesame oil, ginger, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt in a bowl; whisk to combine. Set aside.
  3. 3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add tuna; cook 3 minutes without disturbing. Turn and cook 2 minutes more or to desired degree of doneness. Transfer to a cutting board; slice into 1/2-inch-thick pieces.
  4. 4. Place 1 1/2 cups greens on each of 4 plates. Top each salad with 1/4 of the sliced tuna. Add even amounts of snap peas, scallions, and sesame seeds. Drizzle evenly with dressing.
  5. *Choose ahi or yellowfin tuna over bluefin tuna: Recent reports have found unsafe levels of mercury in bluefin.
