Ahi Tuna with Baby Arugula

This is a healthy "fast food" that is high in protein and so tasty. It takes no more than 10 minutes to prepare, which begs the question, why eat fast food of any other kind? You'll need:

4 tuna steaks, 1 inch thick, which is 20 ozs
5 oz baby arugula
1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
1 heaping tablespoon of Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon of honey
Salt and pepper to taste

Rub a small amount of olive oil, salt and pepper onto either side of tuna steaks.
In a medium skillet, sauté tuna 3 minutes on each side for a medium, pink in the middle tuna.
If you prefer cooked thru, then cook for 5 minutes on each side instead.

While tuna is cooking whisk mustard, oil and honey in a bowl til smoothly blended. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour onto arugula reserving 1/4 cup for tuna. Toss well.

Arrange arugula in plate and place tuna, whole or sliced on top. Drizzle with remaining dressing and serve.

Serves 4
