  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • vegetable oil, as needed
  • 3⁄4 lb St. Jude excellent quality albacore tuna steak, 2-inches thick

In a medium-sized bowl prepare an ice water bath. Set it aside. Wash and thoroughly dry the albacore. Rub a pinch of salt and a very generous grind of black pepper on each side.

Heat a cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, until very hot. Pour a small amount of oil the skillet. Sear the albacore for about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes per side.

Remove albacore and immediately submerge it in the ice bath for about one minute. Remove the fish and thoroughly dry it. Using a very sharp knife cut the fish diagonally across the grain in slices about 1/3-inch thick.

Arrange the fish and avocado slices alternating on a serving plate. Drizzle with the soy and truffle oil and garnish with basil. Serve immediately.
