Making seared ahi is stupid easy. It’s so easy that it’s stupid restaurants make it seam like such a big deal. The hardest part is finding sushi grade tuna which you can find at Japanese markets or your local fish market. 1 lb serves 2-3 people.
1 lb. Sushi Grade Raw Tuna
Fresh Ground Pepper
For the Citrus Sesame Sauce:
1/3 Cup Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
1.5 Tbsp. Tamari Gluten Free Soy Sauce
1.5 Tbsp. Sesame Oil
1 Tbsp. Minced Ginger
To Make The Seared Ahi:
1. Heat pan coated with olive oil to medium heat.
2. Coat both sides of Ahi with a lot of fresh ground pepper. Don’t be shy.
3. Sear Ahi about 1-2 minutes per side.
4. I am no sushi chef as you can see in the photos, but i’ve been told to slice opposite the fish grain.
To Make The Sauce:
Combine orange juice, sesame oil, ginger, soy sauce in a bowl or dish.
That’s it, stupid easy like I said. I served mine with white rice and these awesome black sesame green beans.
