Made this last night for dinner, it was AMAZING!Â I served it with a bit of rice and a napa cabbage salad.Â I left out the jalapeÃ±os just in case the kids might eat any, but then we ate after they went to bed.Â Less flying food that way.;)Â Oh and I didn’t have limes, but I had meyer lemons off the neighbor’s tree, gotta love California.:D

1/2 jalapeno, sliced

1 garlic clove, grated
2 limes, juiced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 (6-ounce) block sushi-quality tuna
1 ripe avocado, halved, peeled, pitted, and slicedIn a mixing bowl, combine the cilantro, jalapeno, ginger, garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Stir the 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 over the whole plate.
