Tuna Slices Recipe Shopping List
for 12 People:
___ 1 pound of fresh tuna steak, can be frozen - but not cooked. Looking for 1 inch thickness or more.
___ Good oil for frying, or coconut oil if possible
___ Salt, pepper and garlic powder
___ Your favorite dipping sauces. See below:
___ Soy sauce, served as a dipping sauce
___ Lemon for a garnish
The Day of the Party:
Generously season the raw tuna steak with salt, pepper and garlic.
Get the oil nice and hot in a small saute pan.
No more than 60 seconds on a side in very hot oil. See the medium rare from the side when you flip. Don’t overcook.
Straight from the pan to the fridge - for an hour or two.
Meanwhile, build your sauces. Check Seafood Recipes for some terrific sauces, including seafood cocktail, tarter, and more. Wanna try something new? Try equal parts of soy sauce and sour cream. Seriously - just do it. Totally too good.
Cooked, cool and ready to cut - get out that knife sharpener and get a nice sharp edge.
Take your time, cut slowly and carefully. Try to get uniform, whole slices across the lines of the fish.
There’s that medium rare you’re looking for. Yummmm!
Presentation: Your Eyes Eat First
You can have a lot of fun getting this presentation just right.
Isn’t it great to serve food you’re really proud of?
Make sure you haven’t had the tuna out in room temperature for more than a couple of hours - then refrigerate and enjoy in a day or so.
