Seared Ahi Tuna

Hi friends!  I made the easiest dinner tonight. 


I don’t know that you can even call this a recipe, it was that easy.  I have always loved Ahi Tuna when I eat out, but I have never made it at home.  After some searching today, I found this recipe and decided to try it with just a tiny bit of tweaking.


  • Ahi Tuna Steaks (Sushi grade—make sure they are pink/red)
  • breadcrumbs (Panko or regular OR both mixed together—which is what I did, with your choice of seasonings added—I mixed in some oregano and dried parsley)
  • olive oil – 2 Tbsp
  • salt and pepper to taste


Heat oil in a skillet until hot.  Sprinkle tuna with salt and pepper, then dredge in breadcrumb mixture.  Place in hot skillet.  Cook 1-2 minutes on each side, or until desired degree of doneness.  I like mine a little more medium or medium rare.  I cooked Ryan’s and Sadie’s a little longer. 




This tuna was so delicious and tasty!  If you’re scared of preparing fish, give this a try!  The original recipe also had good reviews, so I think it’s pretty fool-proof. 



(I still need to perfect slicing it neatly!)


We paired the tuna with tri-colored quinoa and sugar snap peas.  A perfectly tasty (yet easy!) Sunday night meal. 



Hope you all are adjusting to the time change!  My body still thinks it is 8:30, even though it’s almost 9:30 right now… should make for an interesting morning!  ;)
