    Servings and Ingredients

    Serves 2
    1 avocado, peeled, diced
    1 orange bell pepper, seeded and diced
    1 c. diced pineapple
    3 tbsp. lime juice
    ¼ tsp. ground ginger
    ¼ tsp. wasabi powder
    Hy-Vee salt and Hy-Vee freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    ¼ c. toasted sesame seeds
    2 tsp. Hy-Vee canola oil
    2 (1- to 1-1/2-inch-thick) ahi tuna steaks


    1. Preheat grill for medium heat. Lightly oil grate.
    2. For summer salsa, mix together avocado, orange pepper, pineapple, lime juice, ground ginger and wasabi powder in a bowl. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Set aside until ready to serve.
    3. Spread the sesame seeds over the bottom of a shallow dish. Brush the tuna steaks with the canola oil, and dip into the sesame seeds, evenly coating both sides.
    4. Place tuna steaks on prepared grill. Cook until fish turns opaque, turning once, about 4 minutes for 1-inch-thick steaks. Serve immediately with summer salsa.
