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