Love to play with seasonings and recipes and make something from a few ingredients. This is a amazing homemade dinner that the flavors dance upon your tongue. So simple and quick to make on a hectic night when you just want a healthy fast dinner. We enjoyed it very much and look forward to having it again soon. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. ;)
In a pint mason jar add the ingredients for the dressing. Place the lid back on tightly and shake very well. Taste and then adjust seasoning if you need to. Place in the fridge to let the flavors mingle while prepping dinner.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Lay the tuna steaks on a plate or cutting board. Working on one side at a time coat well with the 7 Spice seasoning and the Montreal steak seasoning. Flip them over seasoning the 2nd side the same way and let marinate.
Take a saute pan that is safe to go into the oven and lightly coat it with Pam and the olive oil. Place it on your stove top and let the oil heat up. Slowly place the seasoned tuna steaks into the saute pan.
Cook for about 4 minutes or until you have a nice browning and then gently turn them over to brown the 2nd side.
If you like your tuna raw in the middle you will stop your cooking process now. We like ours cooked so once the 2nd side is browned nicely you will then place the whole saute pan into the oven to finish the cooking process.
While the tuna steaks are in the oven assemble your salad. Toss lightly with the dressing using as much of the vinaigrette as you desire. Set aside.
Once the tuna steaks are cooked to your liking remove them from the saute pan to a cutting board and gently slice them in into strips.
On your plate place a nice mound of the salad remembering to make it appealing to the eyes as well. Gently using the knife you cut the tuna steak with slowly slide it under the whole steak and lift it up placing it on the top of the mound of salad.
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did it was a amazing dinner for us. ;)
