🌱✨ Elevating Plant-Based Delights: Everything-Crusted Ahi Tuna✨🍽️

🌟 Today, we're unveiling the art of crafting Everything-Crusted Ahi Tuna, with a unique twist that'll surprise your taste buds. 😋


- 1 block of firm watermelon, cut into thick rectangular slices

- 1/4 cup of sesame seeds

- 1/4 cup of poppy seeds

- 1/4 cup of dried minced garlic

- 1/4 cup of dried minced onion

- 1 teaspoon of sea salt

- 1 teaspoon of black sesame seeds

- 1 teaspoon of white sesame seeds

- 1/4 cup of soy sauce or tamari for dipping

- Fresh cilantro or microgreens for garnish


1. Combine sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried minced garlic, dried minced onion, sea salt, black sesame seeds, and white sesame seeds in a shallow dish.

2. Gently press each watermelon slice into the seed mixture, coating all sides to mimic the texture of ahi tuna.

3. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and lightly toast each side of your "tuna" for about 1 minute to develop a hint of smokiness and caramelization.

4. Arrange the everything-crusted watermelon slices on a plate, garnish with fresh cilantro or microgreens, and serve with soy sauce or tamari for dipping. For an extra special touch, I enjoy making a yuzu ponzu vinaigrette. Enjoy!
