Seared Ahi Tuna with Blackberry Jalapeno Sauce

I don’t get to fish near as much as I used to, and the only tuna I ever caught came out of the can. But I’m hear to tell you – you ain’t got go deep sea fishing to land this Tuna. Get that cast iron skillet and let’s get to searing.

From my experience, what makes tuna great is also the sauce paired with it. We came up with a blackberry jalepeno glaze that will really bring out the great flavor of the fish with a little sweet kick and no fishing pole required!
