Seared Tuna with Avocado, Cilantro, Soy and Ginger

We are getting our last taste of tuna before cutting back intake due to the radiation contamination in the ocean. This dish is hands down the best tuna recipe we have tried and the best part is how healthy AND easy it is. The tangy soy and fresh ginger are complimented by the freshness of the cilantro. The jalapeño adds a kick which can be adjusted according to your liking.

2 large handfuls fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeno, sliced
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves, crushed or grated
2 limes, juiced
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Pinch sugar
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 (6-ounce) blocks sushi-quality tuna
1 ripe avocado, halved, peeled, pitted, and sliced

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the cilantro, jalapeno, ginger, garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, sugar, salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. Stir the ingredients together until well mixed.

2. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. 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.
