Tuna with Shaved Vegetables

This was a very different weeknight recipe. Shaving vegetables isn’t one of my strong skills, but we still enjoyed this.


1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
3/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon honey
4 ounces baby gold beets, thinly shaved
1 (4-oz.) fennel bulb, trimmed and thinly shaved
4 ounces baby turnips, thinly shaved
1 (6-oz.) Granny Smith apple, very thinly sliced
2 teaspoons toasted sesame seeds
4 (6-oz.) tuna steaks
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon torn fennel fronds

Combine 2 tablespoons oil, vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, mustard, and honey in a large bowl. Add beets, fennel, turnips, and apple; toss to coat. Sprinkle salad with sesame seeds.

Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in a cast-iron skillet over high. Sprinkle tuna with pepper and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; place in hot pan. Cook 90 seconds on both sides (for rare) or until desired degree of doneness. Remove tuna from pan. Slice thinly, and serve with salad; top with fennel fronds.
