For all of you lovers of fish out there, we’ve got a recipe here that you won’t want to miss. Seared Ahi Tuna sits atop a bed of butter lettuce and persimmon, all of it covered in a drizzle of tangy vinaigrette. The sweetness of the persimmon provides a perfect counterpoint to the tang of the vinaigrette, while sesame sticks provide a satisfying crunch to the experience. This recipe comes from Karena over at


To give it a try, you’re going to need the following ingredients:

For the salad:

  • 1 lb. of Living Butter Lettuce (or Living Red Butter Lettuce)
  • 1 lb. of the freshest Ahi Tuna
  • 1 persimmon or Asian pear, diced into bite-sized strips
  • Sea Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • tsp of sesame seeds, toasted
  • a handful of sesame sticks or crackers for crunch (in the bulk section of most grocery stores)
  • Diced scallion whites (optional)

For the dressing:

  • 6 T olive oil (We hear good things about O&CO brand.)
  • 3 T rice wine vinegar
  • 1.5 T soy sauce
  • sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp honey or more to taste
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil, if desired
  • 1/2 tsp of dijon, if desired
