  • 1 pound fresh raw ahi tuna steak
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard (or spicy mustard if you like it spicy)
  • 1 tablespoon old style mustard with seeds.
  • 2-3 tablespoons white toasted sesame seeds
  • 2-3 tablespoons black toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 /2 tablespoon coconut oil


  • 1/4 head of purple cabbage, sliced very thinly
  • 1 1/2 -2 cups sugar snap peas, vertically sliced thin
  • 1 small organic yellow pepper, sliced in thin strips
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • sea salt to taste


  • In a small bowl mix 2 types of mustard together.  Once mixed, rub mixture on ahi steak to cover completely.  Place black and white sesame seeds in a shallow bowl and once combined, place ahi into seeds and cover each side of ahi until fully covered and let it rest.
  • In a large bowl, place sliced cabbage, sugar snap peas, and yellow pepper and add toasted sesame oil and sea salt.  Mix well and place on a serving plate.
  • In a pan, heat coconut oil and cook ahi on medium-low temperature.  Turning over after just a few minutes and repeating.  If you like your ahi less raw, cook for a bit longer.   Place on top of slaw and serve.
