    kda949's Note:

    I wanted a recipe that was similar to the ones I have had a restaurant in the past. I searched the site and found some good sauces for seared ahi- but just not what I was looking for. I found one a lot like I was looking for at Simple Recipes- I tweeked it a bit and I'm posting it here for safe keeping because it was so yummy!! Mind you- it was fresh, wild caught ahi- which can make a difference. I'll let you know how it goes with frozen fish, should I break down and try it (but with two avid ocean fisherman in the neighborhood hood, it will be a desperate move!)

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix the sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, green onion and lime juice in a non metal bowl. Add ahi and coat , cover tightly, and refrigerate for about an hour.
    2. 2
      Toast the sesame seeds in a pan until light brown (I prefer a blend of white and black sesame seeds- the black ones are hard to find, try an asian market). Remove seeds and allow to cool on a flat plate (you will use this plate to dredge the tuna in)- add cracked pepper.
    3. 3
      Add olive oil to a skillet and allow it to get HOT.
    4. 4
      Dredge the ahi in the sesame seeds and pepper to coat and add to the hot pan.
    5. 5
      Cook only two or three minutes on each side so that the ahi is seared on the outside and rare on the inside.
    6. 6
      Serve with white rice and green beans that have been either roasted or cooked and drizzled with sesame oil. Sprinkle any extra sesame seeds over the top.
    7. 7
      garnish with remaining green onion and ENJOY!
