Caribbean Inspired Tuna Steaks


  • 2 4oz. Tuna Steaks
  • ½ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 Teaspoons Grated Ginger
  • 2 Gloves Garlic
  • 3 Limes, Juiced
  • 1 Jalapeño Pepper, Chopped and Seeded
  • 1 Cup Cilantro, Chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 Avocado, Sliced
  • Salt and Pepper


In a Microwavable mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, lime juice, jalapeño, cilantro, and sugar. Use a whisk to completely mix the sauce. Place in bowl of sauce in the microwave and heat on high for one and a half minutes.

Halve the avocado, remove the pit, and remove the skin. Slice the avocado into thin strips, and set aside.

Pat the tuna steaks dry and liberally salt and pepper both sides. Lightly coat a skillet in olive oil and heat on maximum flame.  Sear the tuna for 90 seconds on one side and then flip to sear the other side for an additional 90 seconds.  Turn the heat off, and pour ½ of the sauce mixture over the tuna steaks.  Cover the skillet and let stand for 2 minutes while to prepare the plates.

Place tuna on a plate, arrange the avocado slices on top of the tuna and cover in the remaining sauce.
