Seared Tuna with Mango

Seared Tuna is an easy way to make an impressive meal. With a nice salsa and some rice this makes a great dinner.

Herb Seared Tuna
Tuna - about 4 -5 oz per person
1 Tbs Chili powder
1 tsb garlic powder
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp allspice
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
salt and pepper

Mix the spices together and generously coat the outside of the fish. Drizzle a touch of oil on the outside and rub to coat the entire surface.

Heat a dry pan over medium high heat until hot. Place the fish in the pan and cook a minute or so on each side. The idea is to cook the out side 1/4 inch or so. When done all sides remove and slice into thin slices.

Serve with mango salsa (see below) and rice.

Mango Salsa
1 mango, diced
1/4 red onion, diced
1/2 red pepper, diced
1 avocado, diced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
juice of 1/2 a lime
1 jalapeƱo or splash of hot sauce to taste
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.
