Seared Tuna over Spinach with a Ginger Soy Pineapple Dressing

Seared Tuna Spinach Salad with a Ginger Soy Pineapple Dressing

This would be great with seared shrimp or steak too!

1 4oz tuna steak
1 tbsp sesame seeds

1/2 can water chestnuts, drained, chopped
2-3 c. fresh spinach
1 slice of red onion

For dressing:
1/4 tsp fresh grated ginger
1/4 tsp fresh chopped garlic
1/2 tsp brown sugar
1/2 lime juice
3 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
Pinch of crushed red pepper (optional)
1/2 c. fresh pineapple (I prefer fresh, but canned works too)

1. Mix all salad dressing ingredients, add pineapple, set aside. (if it is too tangy add more soy sauce)
2. Heat a nonstick pan to medium high.
3. Place sesame seeds on a plate, and roll tuna steak to coat all sides.
4. Spray pan with non-stick spray and sear tuna on each side for about 1 minute.
5. While tuna rests, assemble salad. Layer spinach, onion, pineapple, water chestnuts on a plate or bowl. Top with sliced tuna, then pour dressing over.
