A quick dredging in cinnamon transforms classic seared tuna into a new flavor experience that’s subtle but intriguing.
Seared Cinnamon Tuna Gluten-Free Recipe
- 3 tablespoons cinnamon
- 1 (12-ounce) ahi tuna steak (about 2 inches thick)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1-1/2 teaspoons fleur de sel or other flaky salt
Place the cinnamon on a small plate. Dredge the tuna in the cinnamon to coat.
Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Sear each side of the tuna to just brown the outside, 1 to 2 minutes per side, 4 to 8 minutes total. Slice with a sharp knife into 1/2-inch-thick pieces, season with salt, and serve.
