I love tuna…Ahi Tuna. I like to eat it raw (sushi), or seared. The other night I was craving seared tuna. For the first time ever, I videoed myself of searing the tuna. Y’all…it was terrible. So…you get a picture of the completed tuna. Kuddo’s to anyone who does this themselves…without any assistance. Seriously (side note…I have been saying this way too much).
Ahi Tuna…I purchased one steak (about five ounces). Salt, pepper and sesame seeds to coat both sides. Heat your pan with Grape Seed Oil on medium/high heat. The heat on this should have been a bit higher as the sear is not as good as it should be (too much oil as well – so more of a saute than sear).My serving…with a rice vinegar carrot salad, and Jasmine rice. I drizzled a bit of soy sauce and scallions on top. I love this fish, and the flavors of this dish. I need to make it more often.
What is your favorite fish, and how do you prepare it?
I had this Kimchi powder mix and rice wine vinegar… so I sliced some radishes and added some of the powder mix.
It was a quick marinade, tangy and not too spicy. I really enjoyed it. If you like Kimchi, you can find powder mixes at your local Oriental market. Mix it with some rice wine vinegar and your favorite vegetable—Kimchi!
I have been craving Korean BBQ for a while now, and decided to give it a try making it at home.
Part of my goals/weight loss is cooking more at home. I found a couple of recipes, and combined what I thought would be good. David and I loved the marinade, and will make it again.
- ¼ cup tamari or lite soy sauce
- ¼ cup mirin (we made our own with Sherry and sugar)
- ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup Asian pear (used a firm Bartlett pear)
- small onion, grated
- 4 cloves garlic
- 2 teaspoons fresh ginger
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 1 1/2 pounds flank steak (next time will use Ribeye)
- Canola or other neutral oil
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
- Cilantro or mint leaves
- Cooked rice, optional
- Nori (seaweed sheets), optional
Dinner out last night with Carmen. She had sushi (I can’t have the rice), and I ordered the Kalbi. I so need to learn how to make this.
I ate three of the BBQ ribs, and a couple slices of carrots. Lots of leftover rice, vegetables, and sushi for everyone else. I will enjoy the leftover ribs for at least a couple of days.
