How To Cook Seared Tuna Steak – Seared Ahi Tuna Recipe

what is up everybody this is Lyle with
no hippie bbq and what I’m going to be doing in this
video is we’re going to be making some seared ahi tuna we’re gonna have a chance to
let this tuna marinate for a good eight hours before we start searing it off the
marinate that we’re going to be using that has a nice little Asian kind of a
theme to it we’re going to be pairing this seared tuna with some
pickled shallots cucumbers and jalapenos and we’re going to use some of that
sauce it’s almost like a dipping sauce for this ahi tuna should be a very simple
recipe what we’re gonna do now is just hook up this marinade now I’m just going
to kind of throw this marinade together but what I will do is I will put the
ingredients and amounts in the description below this is gonna be good
for around two pounds of fresh ahi tuna which is what we have here so we have our two
pounds of tuna we have some sugar we’re just gonna throw this in our bowl some
salt and pepper some minced garlic and garlic powder would work as well some
sesame oil skip this salt in here some lime juice and our soy sauce now we’re
just gonna mix this up make sure it’s mixed together well and let me move this
to the side I’m gonna grab a ziplock bag we’ll just not throw the tuna in a ziplock bag
and it’s gonna have a chance to sit in this marinade like I said for about
eight hours and about four hours through I will go ahead and and flip those over just to make sure that
there’s marinade contacting every ounce of this tuna and if I didn’t mention it
earlier I will have a recipe for this these pickled vegetables here once we
are done searing off the tuna I’m going to pour off some of this liquid
add a little bit of wasabi paste to it and that’s we’re gonna dip this tuna in
and I’m just gonna kind of massage this in real quick before it goes in the
refrigerator and I’ll see you back in 8 hours all right guys so we’ve got a
chance to let this tuna sit in that marinade for about seven hours now we’re
gonna go ahead we’re going to take the pickled vegetables we’re gonna go ahead
and drain those off now at this point you could go ahead and crust this ahi tuna
with like some sesame seeds or something like that but I think there’s enough
sesame flavor in there with the marinade that we use so there we go we have our
liquid drained off and that’s probably a little bit more than I need right there
I’m gonna go ahead and grab another bowl a a little bit more of a manageable size
and we’re just gonna go ahead and pour this in here we’re not gonna need this
much liquid for our dipping sauce or whatever that’s good to go I have my
wasabi paste that I mentioned earlier we’re just gonna go ahead and squeeze
some of this in if you don’t like wasabi obviously leave it out I’m a big fan of
wasabi so I’m gonna go ahead and stir this in in
the meantime I’m gonna lift this fresh tuna or this tuna and dry out for probably
about another 10 minutes I’m gonna get my skillet screeching hot and we’ll go
ahead and start searing that off these vegetables right here and I’ve already
tasted them they are the bomb this is good by itself sear this off I’m only
gonna sear one of these off because my family’s gonna be home a little bit
later so I’m just gonna go with one right now I’m using a grapeseed oil that
is right below the smoking point and you can use whatever kind of oil you want I
didn’t want to use sesame oil because there’s enough sesame in this marinade
so let’s go ahead and get this in we’re only going to have this in for about a
minute and a half percent so as you can see this brown is kind of creeping up
along the sides we’re about a minute and 15 seconds in I’m gonna go ahead and
flip this now and that should be enough right there go
ahead and remove it I’m just gonna let it sit on the cutting board for about
five minutes before we cut into it this has had a chance to rest for about five
minutes we’re gonna go ahead and slice into the tuna
tuna can be pretty delicate so I’m using the sharpest knife that I have which
happens to be this cheap boning knife that I bought off of Amazon just go
ahead and I’ll put a link to this in the description in case you want to run by
there and take a look at it but boom here’s what we’re looking like that
looks perfect and we are cutting against the grain and
I’m going to go ahead and plate this up I made through throws some sesame seeds
on top of this just for a little bit of garnish and I’m gonna come down here
just to make it a little bit cleaner for our plating presentation and yeah we’ll
go ahead and get to that here in just a minute so I cannot wait to get into this when I
go out to get sushi my favorite part of going to a sushi restaurant is some of
this seared tuna so let’s get in now first I’m going to take it by itself and
that is delicious and I’m gonna get it with some of this
sauce that we made earlier with those pickled vegetable remnants that is even
better now I’m going to stack up some of these pickled shallots jalapenos and I’m
gonna get a piece of this cucumber on here along with the tuna dip this in that right there I’ve been headed now if
you happen to be watching this and you don’t like tuna man this pickle
vegetable is good enough to eat by itself a little spicy for some of you
guys that may not like spice but listen before I take another bite of this I’m
gonna thank you guys for stopping by no BP BBQ How To Cook Seared Tuna Steak How to cook ahi tuna

    Happy Sunday Lyle — which by the way — after you tasted your seared tuna, your hand went up like they do in the testimony service (hehehe). 2 questions: #1 – what would you compare Wasabi to? The only time I've heard it being used is on Iron Chef or something like that. #2 – what skillet did you use? Thanks for sharing and everything looks great and tasty!

  19. MaltLiquorMarauder says:
