I love a delicious seared ahi tuna. This ahi marinade tastes professionally made and is oh-so-simple to make, marinade, and grill. Enjoy with a bowl of rice, on a salad, with some grilled vegetables, or however you like- the recipe offers versatility. Nothing beats a self-prepared and freshly seared ahi tuna. Pure satisfaction!
2 pounds of wild caught yellow fin tuna steaks
1 cup of liquid aminos
2 tablespoons of sesame oil
1 tablespoon of toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon of crushed pepper
2 green onions chopped
1 tablespoon of avocado oil for cooking
1 small head of green cabbage chopped
1 medium carrot shredded
4 green onions chopped
3 cloves of garlic minced
2 tablespoons of liquid aminos
2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons of turbinado sugar
2 tablespoons of crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
1 tablespoon of sesame seeds
salt to taste
Step 1: In a large mixing bowl combine ingredients for the ahi tuna: liquid aminos, sesame oil, toasted sesame seeds, crushed pepper, and green onions. Whisk together.
Step 2: Add the yellow fin tuna and coat it with the freshly whisked mixture.
Step 3: Cover and place in the fridge to marinate for about 1 hour.
Step 4: In another mixing bowl combine the ingredients for the spicy coleslaw: liquid aminos, rice wine vinegar, sugar, red pepper, sesame oil, sesame seeds and salt. Whisk together.
Step 5: Add in your chopped cabbage, green onions, carrot, and garlic and mix with a spoon until everything is mixed together.
Step 6: Cover and store in your refrigerator until you are ready to eat it.
Step 7: Once the tuna is done marinating, remove it from the fridge.
Step 8: Heat up a large pan on medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of avocado oil (you can also use your outdoor grill).
Step 9: Once the pan is hot add the tuna to it and sear. Sear it for about 2 to 3 minutes per side then remove from the pot.
Step 10: Enjoy. Great for salad or sandwiches.
