Seared Ahi Experiment with Stir Fry

Just a quick post on my experimentation cooking Ahi, as I was inspired by the Ahi Salad at the Daily Grill


  • Ahi Tuna Steak from Costco
  • Paprika
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Garlic Powder
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Black Pepper (coarse ground)
  • Soy Sauce
  • Lemon Juice
  • Olive Oil
  • Toasted Sesame Oil
Not shown in pictures, but I first soaked the Ahi Steaks (Whole) in Soy Sauce, Lemon Juice and a dash of toasted sesame oil.

Seasoning the Ahi - I cut two ahi Steaks against the muscle line into two-inch wide strips. and then seasoned with the Paprika, Cayenne, Garlic Powder, Course Ground Pepper, Sesame Seeds

Searing the Ahi - Cooked the first side on high for 2 minutes, flipped to the opposite side for 1 minute.

Fliped tuna on the remaining sides for less than a minute each

Searing is done, perhaps I overdid it just a tad...won't know till I cut it open though! Good way to tell is my how firm it is by pushing in on the center of the loin with your thumb

Cut the strips into 1-2 inch cubes, exposing the raw interior

Cook the stir fry
