Yield:
4 servings (serving size: 1 tuna steak and about 3/4 cup salsa)

This Southwestern tuna has a spicy crust made with coriander, cumin, and black pepper. Serve with warm flour tortillas, and garnish with sliced avocado.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine coriander, cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and black pepper in a small bowl. Rub spice mixture evenly over both sides of fish.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from heat.

Step 3

Combine tomato and next 5 ingredients (through beans) in a medium bowl. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and toss well. Serve salsa with fish. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.

Actually kind of surprised by the rave reviews seen here. It was good, but nothing stellar, and I probably won't make again. I thought the salsa needed more flavor, I think I would add an extra tomato if I DID decide to make it again, and maybe a little something else. It was quick, though, and very healthy. Just a little disappointed after all the great reviews.

This is one of my family's favorite recipes! It is outstanding! Don't overcook the tuna. The combination of flavors is amazing!

Superfast and easy. Made to recipe except grilled outdoors. Excellent summer supper. Light, fresh, flavorful.

Loved the salsa and it goes with chicken too. This is a perfect, easy midweek dish.

We love this recipe! I have made it numerous times, and we never get tired of it. It is especially good with fresh tomatoes, cilantro, peppers, etc. right out of the garden. I served it with a Mexican style rice (but not a real spicy one) and warm tortillas. A+ Hubby's Fave!

"Soooo good, Soooo good" was the review my toddler gave this at dinner (I know... it shocked me too!) and I could not agree more! The seasoning was great and we liked the salsa to accompany it. I served it with rolls and a small spinach salad. I cut too much onion and it was overpowering in the salsa plain, so I sauteed the salsa and it was great that way too. Will make again.

This was super easy to throw together and the taste and presentation were great. I am not really into seared (aka almost raw) fish but my husband loved it and I actually ate it. The flavor was great and I will be using the rub and salsa for other meats. I would definitely make this for company.
