I'd tell you I cooked this, but I didn't. Went to dinner last and had the best seared Ahi with peanut sauce. I couldn't get the recipe from the chef, but would like to do one myself. Any ideas would be appreciated. I took a few bites before I pulled out the iPhone.

    Chimney Tuna

    dash of red chili oil

    dash of sesame seed oil

    1/2.cup dark soy sauce

    1/2 cup honey

    1 T dry wasabi powder



    tuna loin, cut into 2 pieces



    sesame seeds



    peanut oil


    In a non-reactive bowl combine chili oil, sesame oil, soy, honey, and wasabi powder. Reserve 1/4 cup for dipping sauce. Roll eachpiece of tuna in this mixture to coat evenly. Marinate from 1 hour. Remove the tuna from the marinade and discard the marinade.

    On a plate, lay the sesame seeds. Roll the tuna in the seeds to evenly coat.

    Fire up the grill and on a well-oiled grate sear for 15 to 30 seconds per side or to desired temperature. Remove to rack and rest for 3 minutes. Cover with foil or plastic wrap to achieve carryovercooking. Slice thinly and serve with the dipping sauce. 

    We make this recipe all the time - enjoy.
