"I love fish and the comfort it brings. The freshness really matters I would recommend places like Whole Foods, Publix’s seafood or local fish market. I cook this a lot to give me my protein kick and not feel like a muscle man after consuming. Nice and light."

    Once all sides of your Ahi tuna are seasoned and lightly seared on all sides pull them from the skillet and let them rest for about 3/5 minutes.

With your skillet still on low-medium, add the garlic that was still in the marinating bag (if needed add more olive oil) and sautéed them till light brown then pull them and let them cool for about 1-2 minutes.
