Seared Yellowfin Tuna - Tataki
Tuna tataki is one of the best ways to enjoy tuna! Seared on the outside and rare on the inside topped with a tangy citrus soy dressing, the combination is an explosion of flavors that leave your taste buds craving for more.
- 12 oz Yellowfin Tuna about 2 steak fillets
- 1 Green Onions
- 1/2 tsp Toasted Sesame Seed optional
- 1/2 Inch Ginger
- 3 tbsp Ponzu
- 1 tsp Sesame Oil
- 1 tsp Soy Sauce
- 1/8 tsp Togarashi substitute with Cayenne Pepper, but use 1/8 tsp instead
- 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice can
Gather all the ingredients.
Finely chop green onions and set aside.
Grind ginger down with a grinder or a garter and set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, add grated ginger, Ponzu, Sesame Oil, Soy Sauce, Togarashi and Lemon Juice. Mix together and set aside.
Pat both sides of the tuna steak dry with a paper towel and set aside.
Preheat grill to 400F+ (up to 500F if your grill can handle it). Once the grill is preheated, place tuna steaks on the grill and cover. Grill for 30-45 seconds per side just to sear the outside. Inside should have sashimi like texture. Note - make sure you don't overcook the steaks, otherwise it's going to be extreme tough and rubbery.
Transfer grilled steak and let it rest until room temperature (about 1-2 minutes). Once cooled, pour sauce to liking, followed by chopped green onions and Toasted Sesame Seed. Enjoy!
