Seared Tuna with Pineapple Salsa
Tuna is an ingredient we absolutely love since it is packed with flavor, healthy fats, and cooks in under 5 minutes. However, it can be pricey (watch for sales!) so if you can’t find tuna or it is too expensive, just replace it with another sturdy fish and you will still have a delicious dish. The tuna is quickly coated with blackening spices and then served with a delicious pineapple salsa.
