How to Make Heaven: Part I

Marinating Ahi

Are you ready for the best seared tuna of your life?  Well, get ready.  Get a hold of some sashimi grade ahi and follow along won't you?

Marinade

  • 1/2 Cup of Soy Sauce (Naturally brewed dark if possible) 
  • 1/4 Cup of Honey
  • 1 Tbsp of minced ginger
  • 1 Tbsp of minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp of Wasabi powder
  • 1 Tsp of Shichimi Togarashi (Japanese Red Pepper Mix)

Whisk that all together.  Reserve about 1/4 of marinade for dipping sauce then plop your ahi into the rest.  I've got about 1.5 pounds of fish here.  Turn over every few hours for good coverage.

I'm doing this overnight, part II (i.e. searing) tomorrow.  You'll need sesame seeds, scallions and a hot pan to play along.
