Eat: Seared Sesame Tuna, Edamame and Avocado Salad

This very simple salad is packed full of delicious ingredients that are good for you and taste great.


1 fresh tuna fillet

2 tablespoons of sesame seeds

1/2 an avocado, sliced

1/2 a cup of edamame beans, blanched

1 cup of baby rocket leaves

1 tablespoon of peanut oil


1 dessert spoon of honey

1 teaspoon of fish sauce

2 tablespoons of soy sauce

1 tablespoon of olive oil

Dash of sesame oil

To make dressing combine all ingredients and mix well, set aside. Coat tuna fillet in sesame seeds until fully covered. In a frypan heat peanut oil and add tuna, searing each side until the tuna and sesame seeds and golden (approx 2-3 minutes each side). Remove from heat, allow to cool slightly and slice thinly. To assemble salad add rocket, edamame and avocado to a bowl. Drizzle with dressing and top with tuna slices. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy! 

ELE tip – this salad also works great with chicken or salmon if you are unable to get fresh tuna fillets.
