Avocado and Seared Tuna Steak Salad

This Avocado and Seared Tuna Steak Salad rivals any restaurant version.


  • Prep Time : 12 min min
  • Cook Time : 10 min
  • Ready Time : 22 min


4 - 6 servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds tuna steak
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 red onions, peeled and diced
  • 2 scallions, white and half of the green part (about 6 inches), sliced
  • 2 ripe Hass avocados, peeled, pitted and diced


  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons wasabi powder, wasabi sauce or wasabi paste
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 10 dashes Tabasco sauce (about 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1 teaspoon dried coriander (or 1 tablespoon fresh minced cilantro)


  1. Heat olive oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Wash tuna, pat dry and rub with salt and pepper.
  3. Sauté 2 minutes on each side, until seared. Tuna should be cooked outside and still raw inside. Set aside.
  4. In a small sauce pan, combine dressing ingredients and warm over medium-low heat, mixing occasionally.
  5. Meanwhile, place onions, scallions and avocado in a medium to large salad bowl.
  6. Cut tuna into 1-inch chunks and add to bowl.


We can thank my Aunt Tamara for this recipe. She probably thought her version was quick, but it wasn’t quick enough for a novice like me. I’ve revised it slightly to make the prep time even shorter. A dash is not a very exact measurement; it means a quick shake of the Tabasco bottle.
