Seared Bluefin Tuna Recipe

Seared Bluefin Tuna:

Preheat a stainless steel frying pan at high.

Season the tuna with salt and pepper to taste and place in the pan. Cook both sides on high for 1 to 2 minutes. Set aside in the refrigerator.

In a pot, heat the balsamic vinegar and the SPLENDA® Granulated until you obtain a thick mixture. Once cooled, mix in with the plain yogurt.

Cut the apple to make a brunoise (finely diced) and add the extra virgin olive oil.

Cut the tuna in pieces of the same size.

Peppered Arugula Salad:

Toss arugula salad with 2 tbsp (30 mL) of extra virgin olive oil.

Sprinkle generously with crackled pepper to desired taste.


Place the pieces of tuna on a plate.

Pour the apple brunoise on the center of each piece.

Decorate one side of the plate with the peppered arugula salad and the other side with a drizzle of yogurt.
