Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 20 min
Serves: 2


Ingredients

  • ½ pound albacore tuna
  • 2 tablespoons coffee beans, finely ground
  • ⅓ cup ground coriander seeds
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  •  
  • Francesco’s Wild Shrimp Carpaccio:
  • ½ pound wild Alaskan spot shrimp (spot prawns)
  • 6 ounce sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • Sea salt, to taste

Directions

Mix together ground coffee beans, coriander, salt, and pepper. Pat dry tuna steak then thoroughly coat in mixture.

Heat a lightly oiled, large skillet over high heat. When hot, sear entire tuna steak on one side, about two minutes, then flip, searing each side. Leave rare in center.

Quickly place seared albacore in freezer for 30 seconds to halt cooking. Remove fillet from freezer. Slice into ½ inch thick rounds.

To assemble the salad, gently coat spot prawns in olive oil and lemon juice, then mix in sun-dried tomatoes and capers. Season well with sea salt.

Serve tuna on bed of spot prawn salad. Alternatively, pair them with a fresh green salad and roasted seasonal vegetables.

Francesco's pro cooking tip: The tuna should be seared about a quarter inch into the center of the fillet, but left raw in the middle for a melt in your mouth texture.
