Pan Fried Tuna with Asian Glaze



Pan fried tuna coated with an aromatic Asian glaze…

My plan was to make seared tuna, last minute plan changes and I went ahead and pan fried it. I would order seared tuna in a good restaurant, however I seem to have trouble making seared tuna in my kitchen. The thought that it’s not well cooked kind of bothers me when I cook it by myself. So, I went ahead and cooked longer and made this delicious pan fried tuna with an aromatic Asian glaze.
