Ingredients

  • 2 big handfuls fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeno, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1-2 minced garlic cloves
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • pinch of stevia (I use 1/2 packet) of palm sugar
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 (6-ounce) block sushi-quality tuna
  • 1/2 ripe, sliced avocado

 

  • INSTRUCTIONS:
    In a mixing bowl, combine the cilantro, jalapeno, ginger, garlic, limejuice, coconut aminos, sweetener, salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Stir ingredients together until well incorporated.
  • 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 on top.
