Seared Sesame Encrusted Ahi Tuna with Roasted Garlic Quinoa and Seared Baby Bok Choy



4 Ahi Steaks

¼ Cup Mixed, Toasted Sesame Seeds

¼ Cup Sesame Oil

¼ Gram Oil (winterized Pura Co2 oil, 200mg THC was used for this recipe)


  1.   Heat sesame oil on low heat in small bowl, combine Co2 oil and stir bringing the two oils together as one oil. Let cool.
  2.   Place toasted sesame seeds on a plate. Pat dry tuna steaks with a paper towel to remove excess water. Dredge and press tuna in sesame seeds, coating the tuna evenly. Sprinkle with more seeds as needed.
  3.   In a medium frying pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil until just smoking. Frying two portions at a time, arrange the tuna steaks in the pan (do not overcrowd) and cook until the sesame seeds start to turn golden underneath, about one minute. Turn the tuna over and cook for one minute. Sear the edges of the tuna for 15 seconds on each edge. Transfer the tuna to a plate that is covered with a paper towel, patting to gently soak up any excess oil. Repeat with remaining tuna portions. Transfer tuna to a cutting board and cut in half to make triangle.


1 tablespoon butter

¼ gram oil (Winterized Pura Co2 oil 200 mg THC was used for this recipe)

1 cup uncooked quinoa

2 cups vegetable broth

2 teaspoons chopped garlic

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

½ tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

¼ teaspoon salt

1 small onion, finely chopped

1 dash fresh lemon juice (optional)



  1.    Melt butter and Co2 oil, combining as one and in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the quinoa and toast, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes, or until quinoa is tender.
  2.    In a bowl, toss quinoa together with garlic, parsley, thyme, salt, and onion. Sprinkle with lemon juice, and serve.
