Fire up the grill, or heat up a cast iron skillet for this flavorful and simple Ahi Tuna with Peach Salsa! The perfect refreshing, outdoor, spring and summer meal that is a cinch to make. Paleo and Whole30 approved!
I did it you guys. I actually wrote a cookbook. My heart and hard work are all wrapped into that book.
We’re celebrating today!! I’m sharing with you the FIRST and one of the only recipes from the book that I’ll be sharing on the blog.
Just to fill you in, the book contains over 75 recipes, all Gluten-Free, and all 1 pan meals. Each recipe is EASY, and has a 30 minute or less cook time. The ultimate weeknight cookbook! It will be published and available nationwide in December, 2018.
So let’s talk about ahi tuna………
Now would be the right time to tell you, (if you don’t already know), I don’t eat seafood. It’s mostly a texture thing for me.
But I make exceptions for tuna!!! I actually love it. To me, it resembles filet mignon with a meaty texture. I also love that it packs in Omega 3’s, and tastes incredibly fresh with the right right toppings.
Like lime juice, and this deliciously refreshing peach salsa. Peaches make the best replacements for tomatoes in a salsa! We’re also going to rub the ahi filets with some spices. And then finally juice some more lime for that tangy flavor that makes tuna taste incredible.
Best part?? You only need to sear for 1-2 minutes for perfectly cooked tuna!! I love this dish for the ultimate entertaining meal during the summer time. It comes together in no time, giving you more time to spend with your guests. It also doesn’t need to be served hot. Not having to perfectly time a meal makes things so much easier!
I love this over a bed of greens, in a poke bowl, or just plain!
This perfectly seared tuna is raw on the inside, and tastes so delicious and fresh for a spring or summer meal!
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 pound ahi tuna filets, about 1 inch thick
- 2 tbsp avocado oil or olive oil
- 1 cup diced peaches (about 1-2 peaches)
- 2 tbsp diced red onion
- 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 lime juiced
- salt to taste
Heat a skillet to medium high heat, or heat a grill.
Mix together smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne pepper, oregano, salt, and black pepper in a small bowl.
Rub both sides of your tuna filets. Once skillet or grill is very hot, add the oil to the pan (if using grill no need to use oil). Sear for only 1-2 minutes per side, so the top is blackened and the middle is still pink and rare.
Now make your salsa. Stir together peaches, red onion, cilantro, and juice of half a lime.
Slice your tuna, and spoon salsa on top. Squeeze remaining lime juice over tuna, and salt to taste.
