Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil spray

  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar, firmly packed

  • 1 11-ounce can mandarin oranges, drained

  • 1/3 cup chopped avocado

  • 1/3 cup chopped tomato

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • 2 tuna steaks (about 1 pound total)

  • Paprika for garnish

Directions

Coat a medium saucepan with vegetable oil. Place over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in vinegar, brown sugar and pepper flakes. Cook until the sugar dissolves, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients except tuna and set aside. Coat a large skillet with vegetable oil and place over medium-high heat. Add tuna to hot skillet and sear for about 2 minutes per side. Cut each tuna steak in half to make 4 portions. Slice into half-inch strips and arrange "fanned" over Pico de Gallo sauce mounded in center of the plate. Garnish with paprika around rim of the plate.
