Ingredients

  • 4 fillets of yellowfin tuna
  • 1 tablespoon of fennel seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of coriander seeds
  • 1 tablespoon whole mixed peppercorns
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • ground black pepper

FOR THE SPICY MANGO SALSA

  • 3 large ripe mangos peeled and cut into ¼ inch dice
  • 1 medium red onion peeled and cut into small dice
  • 1 jalapeno stemmed, seeds removed, and minced
  • 1 ½ teaspoon minced ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha hot chili sauce or sambal, or hot pepper sauce
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • SPICY MANGO SALSA
  • In a large ceramic bowl combine the mangoes, onions, jalapeno, ginger, Sriracha, and lemon juice, and blend well. Season with salt and pepper. Use or refrigerate.
  • YELLOWFIN TUNA
  • In a mortar, crush together the fennel seeds, coriander seeds, mixed peppercorn, sea salt, and regular pepper until all seeds are crushed.
  • Place the rub on a plate, add the yellowfin tuna and coat them well on both sides.
  • Meanwhile, heat to high heat a non-stick skillet. Once the skillet is hot, rub some olive oil over the yellowfin tuna and place the oiled side into the pan. Sear on high for 1 ½ to 2 minutes per side.
  • Remove from the skillet when done: they should be pink in the middle, sprinkle more olive oil over it, and gently squeeze lemon over each tuna.
