POP Nutrition: Wholesome Seeds Crusted Pan Seared Ahi Tuna

Hi guys,

I had a taste for some tuna and always enjoyed the crust that one gets when it is seared and herb crusted. So I decided to venture out and try it. It came out great and I did not over cook it. I bought it frozen then run under cold water when I was about to make it for 5 min and cooked it. Was delish.


  • 2 4 oz ahi tuna stakes
  • poppy seeds
  • flax seeds
  • chia seeds
  • sesame seeds
  • paprika
  • 1 tsp pure sesame oil

Cooking Steps:

  1. Heat up a heavy bottom pan on low and add 1 tsp of sesame oil.
  2. Take frozen tuna and run in under cold water for about 5 min.
  3. Mix all the seeds and paprika.
  4. Place tuna steaks on the pan and sprinkle with the seed mix.
  5. Let it cook for 1 min then flip it around and cook for anther 1 min.
  6. Add a bit of water and cover. Cook for about 1 min or until you can put a toothpick all the way through. But do not overcook.  It does not take long to cook even though it was frozen. 
  7. Enjoy with the super salad fit for a fitness lover.

Have a great day.
