Pan Seared Tuna with Nectarine Avocado Salsa

Pan Seared Tuna with Nectarine Avocado Salsa
  • Sumo

I would have never cooked up a meal like this before I was paleo. I have become so much more adventurous in the kitchen and have learned a lot about combining flavors. It’s amazing how good real food tastes. Now that it’s summer, I’m adding fruit into my savory dishes and loving every bite. I’ve made a mango salsa before and put it on fish cakes and this recipe is a variation on that theme. It is super easy and quick to make. This was truly delicious and the only thing that stopped me eating until it was all gone was that I wanted to be able to eat the left overs the next day. I love it when I have good left overs to look forward to.
