Seared Ahi Tuna - A Hop's Restaurant Favorite

Delicate, melt in your mouth flavor. This tuna is delectable, and one of our favorite resaurant re-creations.

Ingredients

Tuna Steaks
2 8ounce ahi tuna steaks
non stick cooking spray, preferred Pam with Canola
blackening spice to coat
szechuan sauce for topping
Asian Cole Slaw
bagged cole slaw mix
sesame ginger dressing, preferred Paul Newman's
Wasabi Cream Sauce
1 tablespoon wasabi powder
1 tablespoon water
¼ cup sour cream
¼ cup mayonnaise
Soy Dipping Sauce
½ cup soy sauce
teaspoons sesame oil
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
2 teaspoons hot chili sauce, preferred Sriracha
2 scallions, minced
Garnishes
pickled ginger
wasabi cream sauce
soy dipping sauce

Directions

Tuna Steaks Lightly coat tuna with a non stick cooking spray. Sprinkle (dust) blackening spice over both sides of tuna. Heat an iron skillet (preferred) or a grill pan over high heat. When smoking hot, sear tuna on first side until you can see the bottom starting to turn white. Flip and repeat on the other side, cooking approximately 2 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of steaks. Remove from skillet to cutting board and drizzle with szechuan sauce. Slice into thin strips. Cole Slaw In a large bowl, mix bagged cole slaw mix with a drizzle of sesame ginger dressing. Toss to coat. Wasabi Cream Sauce Stir wasabi powder and water together. Let sit for a minute for powder to absorb water and turn to a paste. In a small bowl stir sour cream, mayonnaise and wasabi paste together to combine. Soy Dipping Sauce In a small bowl combine all ingredients together. Serve with sliced pickled ginger, wasabi cream sauce and soy dipping sauce. Serves 2. Note: Cole slaw, wasabi cream sauce and soy dipping sauce should all be made before starting the tuna. Keep cole slaw and wasabi cream sauce in refridgerator. Soy dipping sauce can sit at room temperature.
