Step 1

Pineapple Couscous Salad Directions:
Prepare the couscous according to the package directions. Consider shorting the water a tiny bit, as the pineapple will add additional moisture.
Pat the pineapple dry, this will keep the couscous from getting too gummy and add to prepared couscous with green peppers

Step 2

Seared Ahi Directions:
Let the Ahi steaks sit in the soy sauce several minutes
Add sesame seeds to a shallow dish and dip the steaks in to cover completely
Grill the Ahi over open flame grill for 1 min on each side then sear the edges for 10 seconds each. Ideally, the outside ¼ inch turns opaque while the center remains bright pink
Slice the Ahi with the grain of the flesh and place on top of the couscous salad
