Being sushi lovers, a seared tuna recipe was a must for this book. The wasabi mayonnaise truly brings out the best in the ahi, providing a savory touch with a hint of heat.

      After moving back to So. Cali from Hawaii, one of the main things I was missing was amazing ahi!!! When I bought the cookbook I knew I had to make it!!! It was so great!!! I over seared one of the steaks, while it was still good, the rarer the better. I have found my replacement for my Spicy Ahi Poke addiction. Yay!!! 🙂
