An Asian twist made with Italpasta Tradizionale Capellini. Your friends would never expect you to master this savoury sweet peanut sauce; not to mention, learn to perfectly sear ahi tuna! This dish will definitely impress.
Heat canola oil in a skillet over high heat. Season the tuna with salt and pepper and coat in sesame seeds. Add tuna to the hot skillet and sear for 3 minutes until golden, turn and continue to sear for another 3 minutes. Remove from the skillet and let tuna rest on a cutting board for 10 minutes. Using a sharp knife, cut tuna into ¼-inch thick slices.
Meanwhile, combine peanut butter, soy sauce, water, vinegar, garlic and ginger in a small microwave safe dish. Microwave for 30 seconds or until peanut butter is softened. Whisk until smooth.
Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until al dente, 2 minutes. Drain and rinse pasta under cold water for 30 seconds. Toss cooked pasta with the peanut sauce, carrots, and salt and pepper to taste.
Divide peanut noodles between plates and top with sliced ahi tuna. Garnish with the chopped green onions.
