seared ahi

This is a very simple recipe….my husband was a little grossed out at first since her wasn’t feeling adventurous but then he really liked it

What you need:

Ahi Tuna (that has been frozen- apparently that’s all that sushi grade really means kills the buggies)

equal amounts:
coarsely cracked pepper corn
sea salt
red chili flakes (omit if you don’t like things hot)

garlic infused olive oil (if you don’t have it you can use regular and throw a few cloves in while the oil is heating up make sure to pull out before it burns)

cast iron pan (an absolute must for awesome flavor and searing)

Just sprinkle all over both sides of the tuna. Make sure to roll the side in it too. Let sit out for a minute while cast iron pan heats up with garlic infused olive oi. Once it starts to smoke put down the tuna. Don’t crowd the pan or it won’t stay hot. Count to slowly 10. turn it over slowly count to 10 again then take it off the pan. Slice thinly on the bias and enjoy!

Served with a side of Kumquaty Roasted Edamame Salad (to be posted tomorrow).
