Seared tuna sashimi

>> Sunday, December 6, 2009

Tonight I pulled together a quick tuna sashimi for dinner. Seared to perfection, then sliced thinly for optimum enjoyment. Tuna sashimi only takes about 5 minutes to cook but you have to make sure you buy a sushi grade cut of fish. I recommend going to Whole Foods or Central Market, not your regular grocery story.

All you need is Yellow Tail Tuna steak, fresh cracked pepper and sesame oil.

In a large skillet or Wok, lightly season the pan with sesame oil. Heat the pan over medium-high heat.

In the meantime, crack an ample amount of pepper over the surface of the tuna steak. Place the tuna in the heated skillet and sear for one minute. Flip and sear the other side for one minute.

Fill a bowl with ice water and set aside. Pull your tuna from the heat and drop into the ice water. This exercise is key as it pulls the heat through your fish. Remove from the water and thinly slice, plate and serve. Enjoy!
