There’s nothing I love more than when dinner takes about 10 minutes and is super delicious. This is one of my favorites. You just need a few ingredients and you have a delicious meal that is way better than going out to a restaurant. When I lived in Japan, my host family never went out to dinner. Sushi was made from cut pieces of nori, homemade sushi rice, fresh fish, and other simple toppings. We would make mini tacos out of the ingredients and everyone made their own individual hand rolls. It was so much fun and is one of my favorite memories of the amazing food my host mom would prepare. Here is my simplified version of that meal that makes for a really easy weeknight dinner. We had ours with pressure cooked artichoke which also tastes great with the Sriracha Aioli.
1 Package Roasted Seaweed
1 lb. Sushi Grade Ahi
Fresh Ground Pepper
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
Combine for Sriracha Aioli:
1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
1/4 Cup Sriracha
Alternative: Combine the following for Citrus Sesame Soy 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. Slice Ahi opposite the fish grain.
5. Place pieces of ahi on top of roasted seaweed, top with avocado and Sriracha Aioli
