Guest Post: Fast(ing) Food - Seared Sesame-Crusted Ahi Over Mango Cilantro Slaw

by Sarah Berger

Eat this and forget you're fasting because you made your mouth so happy.
Seared Sesame-Crusted Ahi over Mango Cilantro Slaw (Yields 2 servings)
~500 kcal/serving (w/avocado) or ~350 kcal/serving (w/o avocado)

This fast day meal is full of healthy fats and a wide variety of vitamins and minerals including iron, 11 grams of fiber, and many vitamins (A, B, C, E), and more.

Sesame-Crusted Tuna:
  • 2 frozen ahi steaks (I used the ones from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 tsp Sesame Seeds (not toasted)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • salt - optional
Defrost tuna in the fridge overnight or in a bowl of cold water (still in package). Remove from package and place on a plate, sprinkle with Sesame seeds on all sides and press into fish. Season with salt, if desired. 

Heat coconut oil in a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Once oil is melted and hot, add fish. Cook on each side for 1-2 minutes depending on desired done-ness. Be careful not to burn sesame seeds---turn often and reduce heat if necessary. 

Remove from pan and place on a cutting board to rest for a few minutes while assembling the Slaw

Mango Cilantro Slaw:
  • ¼ red cabbage, shredded (about 2 cups)
  • 1-2 carrots, grated
  • 2 green onions, sliced finely
  • 1 mango, julienned
  • 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped finely
  • ½ English cucumber, halved lengthwise then thinly sliced

  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • ½ tsp honey
  • 1 tbsp water
  • ¼ tsp salt or soy sauce
  • ½ tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 large avocado, sliced - optional
Combine dressing ingredients in a medium bowl, whisk to dissolve honey and salt. Add in slaw ingredients and toss to coat. Place ½ of the slaw mixture on each plate, slice tuna across the grain and place over slaw. Top with sliced avocado, if desired.
