Cuisine: American, Fish, International
Yield: 4 people


  • 1 teaspoon Soy Sauce (Pritikin Tamari)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper freshly ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger root finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 pound Ahi tuna cleaned and cut into small bite-size cubes)
  • 4 cups arugula greens (or other leafy greens)


  • In a bowl, combine first 4 ingredients (tamari through ginger root). Mix well.
  • Add tuna cubes. Let stand for 1 minute.
  • Divide cubes into 4 equal servings. Mold one of the servings into a metal molding ring with open ends. Any shaped ring will do. Press firmly so that the tuna cubes hold together. You can purchase metal molding rings at Target or Walmart, or at cooking stores such as CookingTreasures.com.
  • Place the tuna (still in its molding ring) on a very hot skillet or flat-top grill. Sear. Using a hamburger spatula, flip tuna to other side so that both sides are nicely seared.
  • Place seared tuna on a bed of baby arugula on a dinner plate. Press the top lightly to release the tuna from the mold.
  • Repeat molding-searing process with 3 remaining tuna servings.


* Pritikin Tamari Soy Sauce:
Combine 1 teaspoon of reduced-sodium soy sauce with 3 tablespoons of brown rice vinegar and ½ teaspoon of wasabi powder. Use 1 teaspoon of this sauce for the Tuna Tartare recipe. It is also a superb sauce for sushi.
