Sesame Seared Tuna and Swiss Chard

My wonderful husband made the most amazing meal tonight. Ok so they're all amazing. But this one was especially good. It's been a while since i've had tuna, and the sauce he marinated it in was absolutely divine!

What you’ll need
Sesame seeds
Soy sauce
Garlic powder
Chili flakes
Swiss chard

What to do
Mix together the soy sauce, honey, ginger, garlic powder and chili flakes. Marinate the tuna in the sauce for 20 minutes. Dip one side of the tuna in sesame seeds and sear for 1 minute. Flip over and sear the other side. In a wok, sautée the swiss chard with onions and garlic. Serve alongside the tuna and sprinkle with onions and sesame seeds. Take the sauce and serve in a dish for dipping. Delish!

We often pick up our fish at Hartman's on Bank just because it's easy. They don't always have tuna tho, only sometimes. But Lapointe's fish market in the market always has some and the Whalesbone has just opened an awesome cash and carry at 504 Kent street at Arlington. I'm not sure if they have tuna but you could always call and check - 613-231-FISH.
