Last night diner (Tuna)

edited June 2013 in Seafood

We picked up some sushi grade yellowfin tuna and my wife wanted 'mahi' style.


Marinated the tuna in a ziplock bag for about 30 min before cooking. (Should have done it for longer) Marinate: soy sauce, sesame oil, water, fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar, pepper. Before searing, I coated the sides with some sesame seeds.


Fire up the egg up and stable it at 600. Seared the tuna for 90 seconds each on both side. Once the tuna removed from the egg, I put it back into the fridge for 5 min to avoid further cooking


Didn't feel like rice so we ended up havong it on a salad.


Thanks for reading. Cheers!

    Looks like you've got the seared tuna cook nailed!
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
