These Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks with Sriracha Mayo are delicious, healthy, low-calorie, low weight watchers points, and bursting with flavor. I LOVE seared ahi tuna - it takes just minutes to cook and this homemade marinade with sesame oil and soy sauce brings it to a whole new level.
- 2 tuna steaks (4-6 ounces each)
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp grated ginger (or I use tubed)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 4 tbsp light mayo
- 2 tsp sriracha
- green onion for garnish (optional)
- sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
- Pat the tuna steaks dry.
- Mix together the soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic powder, ginger, salt and pepper. Pour over the tuna steaks and marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour, but preferably overnight.
- Heat a non-stick skillet on high for several minutes, until very hot.
- Add the olive oil to the pan and sear the tuna for 1-1.5 minutes on each side (this will give you a nice sear on the outside, but medium rare on the inside).
- Remove tuna steaks from the heat and let rest for 2-3 minutes.
- While the steaks are resting, mix together light mayo and sriracha.
- Slice tuna and drizzle with sriracha mayo. Garnish with green onions (optional) and sesame seeds (optional).
