Paula Deen's Air Fryer Cookbook
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 6 minutes
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons bourbon
- ¾ teaspoon black pepper
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tuna steaks (8 ounces each)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 lime, juiced
- 1 cup sesame seeds
- oil, for spraying
- 2 cups arugula
- 4 radishes, trimmed and sliced
- ½ cup sliced red onion
- ½ cup sliced red bell pepper
In a large bowl, whisk together soy sauce, bourbon, black pepper, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, and 2 tablespoons of the sesame oil. Add tuna steaks and flip to coat both sides. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and marinate for 1 hour in refrigerator.
To make a honey dressing, in a small bowl, combine remaining olive oil, remaining sesame oil, honey, and lime juice; mix well.
Place sesame seeds in a shallow dish. Press both sides of marinated tuna steaks into sesame seeds, spray with oil, and place in air fryer basket. Set temperature to 400 degrees, and air fry for 6 minutes. Turn and spray tuna steaks with oil halfway through cooking.
Cut tuna steaks diagonally into ½-inch-thick slices. Divide arugula, radishes, red onion, and bell peppers between 2 salad plates, and place sliced tuna on top. Drizzle with honey dressing and serve.
