Recipe of the Week: Shaved Fennel and Arugula Salad with Orange Supreme and Seared Yellowfin Tuna

Serves: 4 people

Total Time: 15 minutes Prep Time: 12 minutes Cook Time: 3 minutes


  • 1 Fennel Bulb, Shave, Save the Fronds
  • 1 Navel Orange, Supreme Cut, Save Juice and Zest of the Orange.
  • 1 Bag of Arugula
  • 1 Pound of #1 Grade Yellowfin Tuna, Cut Into Blocks
  • 4 Tablespoons of Olive Oil
  • Canola Oil, as needed
  • Salt and Pepper, as needed
  • Coriander, as needed

Method of Preparation:

  1. Combine the olive oil, orange juice, and the salt and pepper to make the vinaigrette.
  2. Combine the fennel and arugula in a bowl. Drizzle some of the vinaigrette into the mixture and lightly toss.
  3. Coat your tuna blocks with coriander, salt, and pepper. Sear in a pan on high heat until a crust forms on the courtside of the tuna. This should take about 30 seconds per side.
  4. Slice the tuna into 1/4 inch slices.


  1. On the left side of an oval plate, mound the arugula and fennel mixture.
  2. Arrange the orange supremes towards the front of the mound.
  3. On a diagonal, arrange the shingles of tuna on the right side of the plate.
  4. Top the tuna with fennel fronds, orange zest, and a light drizzle of the vinaigrette.
  5. Enjoy with a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc on a beautiful summer day.
