Seared Ahi w/Mixed Greens

This post will, by far, be the shortest post.  That’s how easy it is.

Seared Ahi

I made this for Appetizer Extravaganza! for Shawnee’s birthday (with zebra cheesecake).

Not having a lot of experience with making sushi or serving rare fish I am very cautious. I’m not confident with the freshness of fish at the grocery store, so I will start by telling you I called in a favor to a friend who owns a restaurant.  So if you know your source and the freshness of your fish you’re good (Or if you are lucky and fortunate enough to have a friend like I do!)

On with the recipe!

6-8oz of Ahi per person

sesame seeds (regular and black)

1 Tablespoon crushed red pepper

salt and pepper

On a plate evenly spread the sesame seeds, red pepper, salt and pepper.

Dip all sides of each piece of fish in the sesame seed mixture.

Heat a grill pan over high heat, spray with a thin coat of oil.

Sear the Ahi 2 minutes on each side (watch out the sesame seeds started popping everywhere).

Slice thinly and lay on a bed of greens. I served this with Sriracha chili sauce and soy sauce because we all liked it simple.

Enjoy!
