I have seen a few nice looking plates of Ahi Tuna posted in here, and am planning on cooking some tonight.
Any recipes, or spices you would recommend putting on it?
2 tbsp soy sauce
3-4 tbsp lime juice
1 serano (or birdseye chili)
1 clove of garlic
1-2 tsp of fresh minced ginger
Marinade for at least 1 hour.
Oil your pan
pepper your Tuna and Pan sear on medium-high for 1 minute each side, until its a little crusty. Never cook tuna all the way through (unless you’re a lame fuck who likes to eat dried out fish).
Add the marinade to cover the fish, and turn off the heat
Top with chopped cilantro
play around with the marinade too. lots of different flavors you can add in there. Want to go more japanese, then use Sesame Oil. You can even encrust the tuna in sesame seeds or crushed pecans or something like that.
my marinade is:
1 cup dry sherry
splash of soy sauce (dont go crazy with this, soy will overwhelm the fish very easily)
1/2 scallion chopped
2 tbsp chopped fresh ginger
2 cloves chopped garlic
marinade 30 mins to an hour
and i prefer open flame instead of pan.
but the cooking time and level of doneness i agree with. no more than 1 min per side and only to sear.
Meal turned out awesome!
Marinated for 1 hour in:
Dash of Pepper
Dash of Salt
Dash Cayenne Pepper
4tbsp Liquid Aminos (for a soy sauce taste)
2 tbsp Very Very Teriyaki Sauce (To sweeten it up)
1 tsp Olive Oil
2 tsp Vinegar
1 tsp fresh lemon zest
1 tsp of fresh lime zest
1/2 a lemon squeezed
Put it in the fridge in a bag and while I waited for that to marinade I readied the grill and veggies.
Vegetables (Side dishes)
Thinly sliced radishes and cucumbers to go with the Ahi, gave them a light salting.
1/4 cup of cottage Cheese with one Tangerine.
about 5 pieces of large Asparagus
lightly oiled them with olive oil
Dash of fresh pepper
dash of salt
A little cajun seasoning and then sear each side on a skillet with a touch of butter. Boom done.
