Tuna Steak with Simple Romaine Salad


Tuna Salad


Ok, so thanks to Ina Garten I learned how to properly pan-sear tuna. She says to cover the tuna in olive oil add any dry seasonings you like and then drop the fish into a DRY, HOT pan (in other words, don’t put any oil in the pan). So here is my easy recipe.

Feeds 2.


2 tuna steaks

1 head of romaine

2 lemons

1 avocado

olive oil



How to do it:

put your frying pan on the proper-sized eye and heat to hot, hot, hot! While your pan is heating get your thawed tuna steaks; cover them in olive oil, a good layer of salt, and pepper (or ms dash or whatever you like). Once your pan is searing hot lay in your seasoned tuna. Cook for 2-3 mins on each side depending on how done you like your fish.  As your tuna is cooking chop (or tear) romaine and place in a large salad bowl. Once tuna is cooked slice into one inch cubes and place it in the bowl. Top with diced avocado. Then dress your salad with fresh lemon juice, lemon zest (optional) and olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!




Every time we have a get together someone asks me to bring this. This secret is to use fresh ingredients and it will always turn out well.


3-4 avocados, diced

1/2 yellow onion, diced

1 large jalapeno, diced (seeds removed)

1 lime

1 large handful of cilantro, chopped

2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced

1 large pinch of salt

How to do it:

place diced onion and jalapeno in a medium-sized bowl. top with the juice of one lime and pinch of salt. use the bottom of a glass (or something flat and hard) to muddle the onions, jalapeno, lime juice and salt. once things look pretty mashed up, add in diced avocados, diced tomatoes, and cilantro. mix well (it will be chunky but I promise it’s good this way)

*When we did the Whole30 we ate this with some crudites. so good.
