Fresh Seared Ahi Tuna


I tried two different recipes for this to see which I liked best.  They were both  good.  One was Bobby Flays and one was from Dar at Cookin Canuck (I found her on a search, you may want to check her out, she does all heath conscience recipes).

If you’ve never had Fresh Caught Ahi Tuna before, it is very mild. It doesn’t even taste like Tuna.  It’s fresh, almost tasteless when ultra Fresh. You must try it at least once, you may be hooked! Read on to see more photos.

*Per Dar’s expertise, do not Marinate for longer than 15 minutes or the acid will essentially Cook the Fish.  Keep the Marinade and put over the finished Fish.

Dar’s Marinade: 1 Tbls Fresh Lime Juice, 2 Tbls Soy Sauce, 2 Tsp Sesame Oil, 1-1″ piece fresh Ginger sliced, 1/2 Tsp Ground Pepper, 1 Green Onion Optional. 2-6oz Sushi Grade Ahi Tuna Steaks 1″ thick.

Bobby Flays recipe you can find on line. The recipe was called; Grilled Swordfish with Pineapple-Mustard Glaze and Cilantro-Mint Chimichurri. *I just substituted the Ahi for the Sword Fish.

I served with Wasabi Paste, Chopped Ginger , Fresh Limes, Chimichurri and White Rice. The Ahi Tuna was absolutely delicious.  I could have this at least once a week.


We got two gorgeous pieces of Fresh Wild Caught, Ahi Tuna at Costco for around $20.


You Sear on a Hot Grill for only 3-4 Minutes per side.


Touching up with extra Marinade right before slicing.


This was cooked 4 minutes per side and was just the way we like it.
