07 Aug Ahi Tuna With Honey, Miso & Ginger Sauce
|Serves 4 to 6|
1 lb. Ahi steaks (¾ inch thick; 2 steaks)
Place the Ahi steaks in a dish for marinating. Combine all the ingredients in a small (non-metallic) bowl. Pour the marinade over the Ahi and flip to marinate both sides. Cover the fish tightly with wrap and allow it to marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 to 1½ hours.
Over medium heat, sear the steaks in a non-stick skillet. Each side should be seared for 1 to 1½ minutes. This is a matter of taste, for a longer sear will leave the Ahi less rare in the middle.
Now, remove the Ahi from the skillet and cut into ¼ inch thick slices. There are many options for serving: sprinkled with scallions, alongside rice, over a bed of beautiful mixed greens, sliced cabbage or fennel.
This dish is served slightly chilled or cold.
