Asian-Style Tuna with Rice & Squash

The seared ahi is good enough that it can be a meal by itself, but why not round it out with some rice and sautéed squash. We like our tuna with a nice charred crust, but still nearly raw in the middle, so crank the heat up high on the pan, and cook each side for no longer than a minute.
