Ahi Tuna Steak – an easy, yet elegant, dinner worthy of the most special occasion! Made with Maple-Mustard Sauce
1: 2 5 oz. Ahi tuna steaks
2: 3 tbsp. maple syrup
3: 2 tbsp. olive oil
4: 1 tbsp. lemon juice
5: 1 1/2 tbsp. Dijon mustard
6: 1/4 tsp. salt
7: 1/4 tsp. pepper
Take the Ahi Tuna out of the refrigerator. Remove the packaging, and set aside.
In a large dish, mix all of the marinade ingredients together. Reserve about four tablespoons of the marinade. Add the tuna steaks to the dish, and turn them until they’re well-coated. Set aside, and let them rest at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes.
Heat up a non-stick skillet over high heat. Sear the tuna steaks for about 1-3 minutes on each side, or until the steaks reach their desired doneness.*
Place the cooked steaks on a cutting board, and slice against the grain into ½-inch thick slices. Transfer the steak slices to a serving plate and drizzle with the reserved maple-mustard marinade. Serve immediately.
