Seared 'Ahi
  • Dipping Sauce:
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh ginger, finely slivered
  • 1 teaspoon green onion, finely chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons oil
  • 2 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • For Tuna:
  • 1 pound 'ahi tuna
  • Garlic salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tablespoon oil (I used peanut oil, but canola would be fine too)
  • Finely sliced lettuce, optional
  1. To make dipping sauce: Place ginger and green onion into a small dish. Heat oil in small pot until very hot. Pour over ginger and green onion. Immediately add soy sauce and stir; set aside.
  2. For Tuna: Cut tuna into sashimi blocks, about 1-by-1-1/2 inch blocks. Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. Heat frying pan; add oil. Fry pieces for 15-20 seconds on each side and remove,
  3. Immediately serve pieces with the dipping sauce. The pieces can be placed on small plates with or without some sliced lettuce.
