This seared ahi tuna recipe is one of my more elaborate dishes but I still wanted to share it with you because it’s absolutely delicious! I love the unique combination of flavors in this dish – ahi tuna with creamy avocado sauce and refreshing pineapple salsa. The ahi tuna is first marinated in a simple soy-garlic and sesame seed oil glaze, then seared to perfection, keeping the inside meat a nice rare temperature. Make sure to use a sharp knife to slice the tuna into thin slices!
The fun part of this dish is the toppings and sauce! I make a delicious and creamy garlic avocado sauce to accompany the tuna. This sauce made with cilantro, avocado, garlic and olive oil is actually great as a salad dressing, too and works so well with the tuna. Then, it’s onto the pineapple salsa. This simple salsa is made with diced pineapple, tomatoes and shallots. It’s very refreshing and helps mellow out the rich flavors of the tuna and sauce. But that’s not all! The whole dish is topped with an incredible home-made teriyaki glaze! This glaze is another one of my favorites and it goes very well with any type of seafood.
Every bite of this incredible seared ahi tuna dish will be an explosion of flavors in your mouth. If you want a unique and impressive dish, try this recipe!
