    Servings and Ingredients

    Ingredients
    Serves 4
    QuantityIngredientAdd
    1 (12-oz.) Hy-Vee Fish Market skinless ahi tuna steaks, 1/2 inch thick
    3 tsp. Hy-Vee canola oil, divided
    ½ c. white and/or black sesame seeds
    ¼ tsp. Hy-Vee lemon-pepper seasoning
    2 large ripe avocados, seeded, peeled, and diced
    ¼ c. Ingrilli lemon juice
    2 c. Hy-Vee fresh pico de gallo, drained well
    ¼ c. cotija cheese, crumbled
    Microgreens, for garnish

    Things To Grab

    • Paper towels
    • Plate
    • 12-inch cast-iron skillet
    • 4 (3x2-inch) round metal ring

    Directions

    1. Pat tuna dry with paper towels; rub with 2 teaspoons canola oil. Place sesame seeds on a plate; coat tuna with seeds. Season both sides with lemon-pepper seasoning. Toss avocados with lemon juice in a small bowl; set aside.

    2. Heat remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a 12-inch cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add tuna steak. Sear 4 to 6 minutes or until tuna reaches 145 degrees and is still pink inside, turning halfway through. Let rest 5 minutes. Cut into 1/2-inch cubes.

    3. Drain avocados. Place a 3x2-inch round metal ring on each of 4 serving plates. Spoon 1/3 cup drained pico de gallo into each ring, spreading to an even layer. Divide and layer with avocados and tuna; gently press down to hold together.

    4. Top stacks with Cotija cheese. Garnish with microgreens, if desired. Lift and remove rings to serve. Serve immediately.
