  • Seared Ahi with Passion Fruit-Shrimp Salsa

    Passion Fruit-Shrimp Salsa

    1 ripe passion fruit (mango or other tropical fruit may be substituted)
    4 or 5 extra-large shrimp (about 4 ounces total), peeled, deveined, and diced
    2 teaspoons coconut oil
    1/4 cup finely minced onion (a Maui onion if available)
    1/2 cup peeled, seeded, and finely diced tomatoes
    2 tablespoons finely sliced scallions
    1 tablespoon finely minced fresh cilantro
    1 jalapeno pepper, seeded, minced
    salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

    Scoop out the pulp from the passion fruit and press through a fine sieve. Reserve the juice (about 1 tablespoon). Sear shrimp in a skillet with coconut oil over high heat until cooked through. Transfer to a stainless steel mixing bowl, add the passion fruit juice and the remaining ingredients, and toss well to combine.

    Seared Ahi Tuna

    4 ahi tuna steaks, about 7 ounces each
    3 tablespoons coconut oil
    salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
    passion fruit—shrimp salsa (recipe above)

    Coat the ahi steaks with the coconut oil and season with salt and pepper. Heat a dry cast-iron skillet and sear the ahi over high heat for about 15 to 20 seconds each side for very rare (about 1 minute each side for medium-rare).

    To serve, place the steaks on plates and spoon the salsa over the tuna. Serves 4.
