Seared Tuna with Mango Salsa, Rice and Asparagus

Updated: Jul 4

Sushi grade ahi tuna with a sweet mango salsa, white rice topped with peanuts and soy sauce plus tender asparagus

I love sushi and Mango, so this Seared Tuna with Mango Salsa, Rice and Asparagus was the perfect healthy, fulfilling meal. The tuna is seared sushi style and topped with a traditional mango salsa of mango, red onion and jalapeño. I then whipped up a pot of rice and drizzled soy sauce and crushed peanuts over the top. Then, the asparagus is really simple; throw it in the steamer and let it steam to your desired tenderness. This dish gives me Asian/Hawaiian vibes, and makes me want to travel to that part of the world. I've been to Hawaii when I was little, and went to Singapore right before Covid (Tokyo Narita Airport too, if you count a 2 hour layover lol). Grab a fork or chopsticks cause it is time to eat!
