My family loves my cooking so I always try to find different recipes other than my own to keep them enticed. I’ve tried many 5-star rating recipes and always had to tweak some ingredients/measurements here and there to make the dish taste right. I have to say that I’m extremely impressed with this recipe because I did not have to make any adjustments. The flavors are amazing and so easy to make.
Thank you Elise for sharing your wonderful recipe!
You are very welcome C.J., I’m so glad you like the tuna!
Ran across some nice AHI at Sprouts and wanted to try this recipe. Turned out yummalicious!:) We like a little heat so I added a teaspoon of hot chili oil to the marinade that has the crushed red pepper flakes mixed in.
Holy. Crap.Made this with some local Oregon albacore tuna from a fisherman buddy. This is by far the best thing I have ever eaten. In my life.I saved the marinade to dip the tuna in after straining the ginger pieces out. I also seared it in canola oil. I am addicted.Y’all will either see me on “my 600 pound life” or I’ll go broke. Thank you Elise for the great recipe, and thank you to the ocean for having such delicious creatures
Yay! I’m so glad you liked it Amanda!
Amazing! My first time buying and cooking Ahi Tuna! I bought a thick fillet , did the marinade for about 1/2 hr….it was getting late. Pan seared and cooked about 2 min per side..Made a quick aoli with lime juice and garlic…Thank-you for making my first experience with Ahi Tuna a 100% great taste sensation! I will always have your recipe now as my go to!
Really delicious and easy to prepare with items accessible to everyone. I included some pickled onions as a garnish that I had leftover from another recipe. My husband loved it!
Just what I was looking for. Thank you.
I have been following your site for quite a long time now. We lived in Granite Bay and eat what is seasonal. Your coordination with the hunter fish garden guy is a big plus for us. We make our own elderberry syrup off of our own trees and the list goes on and on. Fish Tomales Bay etc. We get our Bay leaves from Ruck-A-Chucky or Tomales Bay. Keep it up! I took the survey too! P.S. We just moved to Hawaii for a while and have hit on some great Farmers Markets here!
Hi Jack, thanks for saying hello! “Mahalo” to you! It’s almost elderberry season, can’t wait. I’m so glad you have found the site useful.
Outstanding… it was an easy and fast marinade as I had everything on hand. I have tried lots of marinades for tuna but this is my favorite – loved the flavors, tossing the others out! I dipped my tuna steaks into a bed of white sesame seeds and the result was so delicious. Many Thanks Elise… cheers, judie
Great seared tuna we had since number of unsuccessful results. Better than most restaurant I ordered. I’ll post a photo next time.
This totally ruined the flavor of 4 beautiful tuna steaks. I you like tuna do not use this!!!
I couldn’t disagree more. This is an amazing recipe – simple and tasty.
This was restaurant quality, yummy, I did leave marinating overnight and cooked each side for 1 minute 15 seconds and it came out perfect, just the way I like it on the rare side , the flavor combination was spectacular
great marinadeused excellent steaks from costcoseared just right for salad topper all week
This recipe is AWESOME! A high quality restaurant dinner at home! We will be having this in heavy rotation. And it was so very simple to make.
Delish! Simple and very, very good!
Awesome. Made exactly as the recipe. I make extra so the leftover is a treat at breakfast. Ahi tuna from Costco.
Thank you for this recipe! Had tuna steaks in the freezer for a bit, not sure what to do with them. Found this recipe and saw that I had most ingredients on hand (thanks to my daughter trying different foods). I used lemon juice because I didn’t have lime, but think lime would be much better. Used yellow onion; green would be prettier. And now I know why to only cook a little. I cooked 2 minutes per side and it was a bit overdone as far as texture goes. But it still tasted really good. Looking forward to trying again. Used same marinade on Tilapia. That works as well; just cook till done.
Elise, this was absolutely delicious. My husband said “you could make this once a week”. It was restaurant quality. We did ours on the grill and didn’t change a thing. It is so tasty you don’t need any sauce or fruit salsa with it. Thanks so much for another winner!
I’m so glad you liked it Linda!
Amazing! Made it tonight for the family and everyone agreed we must do this one again. The kids could not get enough of it…and while they aren’t too picky (we’ve had them eating sushi since they were 5) this was definitely one of their favorites. Thank you!
Used wild ahi tuna filets from Costco. A bit pricey, but a hard requirement for this dish. Used a non stick pan, and served with spicy aioli and avocado.
