Submitted by:
Quick and flavorful prep for this nice fish.

Serves: 2

Preparation time:
Cooking time:


2 5oz Sushi-Grade Ahi Tuna steaks, raw and fresh (not frozen)
McCormick's Bayou Cajun Seasoning
Garlic Powder
Pam Spray, butter, or olive oil (optional) for cooking
2 Cups Mixed salad greens
1 Avocado, ripe and chilled
Olive oil for salad


1. Set Ahi filets on a cutting board or other stable surface
2. LIGHTLY sprinkle the McCormick's seasoning on one side. If you sprinkle too much it will overwhelm the fish. One suggestion is that you can still see the surface of the fish through the sprinkle.
3. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
4. Set fish aside
5. Place salad greens in large bowl
6. Add olive oil in small amounts, tossing in between each addition. Continue adding until desired amount coats greens lightly and evenly
7. Slice entire avocado
8. Heat frying pan on medium heat
9. Add Pam, butter, or olive oil. If you don't wish to add one of these then using a non-stick pan is best.
10. Add tuna filets to the pan with the seasoned side down
11. Repeat seasoning on the upward facing side while fish is cooking
12. Watch sides of the fish to determine when to flip over to the other side. If you like it rare you will flip it in a minute or two depending upon how thick the Ahi is. Cook longer if you prefer.
13. Once Ahi is seared to your liking, remove Ahi from the pan and place on a cutting board
14. Slice Ahi into thin strips
15. Divide salad green mixture among two large salad bowls
16. Add sliced Ahi to each bowl
17. Add avocado slices to bowl
18. Serve with chop-sticks and enjoy!
