Pan Fried Albacore Medallions with Ranch Dressing

 

  • 1/2 lb. Albacore Tuna PER SERVING (2lbs for 4 people)
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 c. chopped Hazelnuts
  • 1/2 c. Panco (Japanese wheat breading)
  • 1/2 c. fish fry OR flour OR cornmeal
  • Seasoning to taste
  • Ranch Dressing


Cut tuna into medallions (tuna steaks) 3/4 inch thick. Put fish and beaten eggs into zip lock bag and let set 20 minutes. Take fish out of egg and roll in mixture of Hazelnuts, Panco, and fish fry. Season to taste. Let this sit 10-15 minutes before frying. Pan fry in scant olive oiled pan 3 minutes each side. Take off heat and let sit 5-10 minutes. The fish will continue to cook. TUNA DRIES OUT IF OVERCOOKED so be careful not to cook too long. Drizzle medallions with ranch dressing mixed with lemon juice and enjoy!
