Yellowfin Tuna Nicoise

Yellowfin Tuna Nicoise



Season the tuna on both sides with salt, pepper. Heat olive oil in a sauté pan over high heat; add tuna steaks and sear for 2 minutes on each side for medium rare. Remove from heat and slice thin.  Set aside to cool.  In a medium bowl, toss the vegetables with vinaigrette dressing. Place romaine lettuce on plates and arrange the vegetables, olives and egg slices around the greens toward the outside of the plate. Place the tuna steak on top of the greens. Drizzle a small amount of vinaigrette over the tuna and vegetables. If using goat cheese, crumble a small amount on top of the tuna. Nicoise salad should be served at room temperature or cold.
