This is not a new recipe for mydinnertoday but cooked a little differently, served a little differently and with extra emphasis on the marinade. The marinade is the secret of this recipe.
Ingredients for marinade for 2 fillets
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 tablespoons chilly sesame oil
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon ground ginger
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- 1 onion, chopped (use green onion, sliced, if you have them)
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
How to make: Rub the ground ginger on the ahi tuna fillets. Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the fillets. Let the tuna in the marinade for at least 2 hours. When ready to cook, heat a pan and sear the tuna for a few minutes on each side. Slice and serve on greens as in the photo above or the whole fillet with rice as in the photo below. I had the sliced version with the greens. The kids had their tuna with rice and my husband with both 🙂 You have to try this marinade. If you try it with regular tuna, let me know if it came out good.
