Seared Ahi Marinade

Recipe by kda949
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add olive oil to a skillet and allow it to get HOT.
  • Dredge the ahi in the sesame seeds and pepper to coat and add to the hot pan.
  • Cook only two or three minutes on each side so that the ahi is seared on the outside and rare on the inside.
  • 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.
  • garnish with remaining green onion and ENJOY!
