Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

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.
