Sesame Crusted Tuna

Seared or raw tuna is one of my favorite fish to eat whether I’m having sushi, ceviche, poke bowls or salads like this. Some other tuna recipes I love made with sushi grade tuna are Ahi Tuna Watermelon Salad and Seared Tuna Salad with Wasabi Butter Sauce.

Whenever I go to the fish market (I love Jordan’s Lobster Farm near me), I’m always asking my fishmonger about the freshest fish. I think it’s really important to spend more money on fish at a reputable fish store, especially when buying sushi grade tuna. I usually call ahead and ask them when they are expecting their next delivery so I know it hasn’t been sitting. When I purchased this beautiful tuna steak, I knew exactly how I was going to prepare it, crusted with sesame seeds! Nothing is easier, quicker and more delicious than sesame crusted ahi tuna that has been lightly seared and served rare with a tangy sauce.

How To Buy Sushi Grade Fish

Although something is labeled sushi-grade, here are a few things to consider.

Finding a reputable fishmonger or market. Look for one that sells in high volume, gets in regular shipments, and has a knowledgeable staff.Ask questions. Always talk to the vendors before buying the fish to make sure it’s safe for raw consumption. If your fishmonger is storing unwrapped sushi-grade fish in the same refrigerated case as non-sushi-grade fish, this should be a big red flag.Use your senses. The fish should smell fresh like the ocean, never fishy. The color should be vibrant.
