Coming from Hawaii,
this sushi quality tuna has a vibrant red color and can be eaten
raw, grilled or sautéed. Our Ahi Tuna is a
valuable source of vitamin B12, phosphorous, and potassium. It contains
nutrients that promote cardiovascular health and reduce risk for colon cancer
and helps prevent and control high blood pressure.
Tuna lends itself to a
variety of seafood preparation methods. Small seared pieces can be marinated in
a tangy soy, citrus or fruit-based sauce and grilled on the barbeque; seared
stovetop with olive oil and garlic; broiled with a simple butter and fresh herb
baste; or, served raw, sashimi style just the way they come.
Buy ahi tuna from
SeafoodHub and try this recipe that requires one pound of sashimi grade tuna,
kosher salt to taste, fresh ground black pepper to taste, ½ cup of Italian
seasoned bread crumbs, and three tablespoons of organic extra virgin olive oil.
With a sharp knife, cut the tuna into four large pieces for appetizer portion
or two large pieces for dinner portion. Use your judgment on what shape you
want to cut your tuna, although the shape should somewhat resemble a miniature
brick. Season the tuna pieces with salt and pepper. Coat the tuna steaks lightly
on all sides with bread crumbs. Heat the olive oil in a large heavy skillet
over high heat. The pan should be as hot as you can get it. Place the ahi tuna steaks
in the pan, and sear on each side for about 45 seconds for small portions, or one
minute for large. Remove the tuna steaks from the pan. The tuna should still be
somewhat rare. Slice each 'brick' into ¼ inch thick slices, and fan out on a
serving plate. Enjoy plain, or with condiments of your choice.
For a large dinner
party or single service use, just take out what you need and leave the rest for
later! These delicious ahi tuna steaks are delivered straight to
your door. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
