Blackened Ahi Tuna recipe

The chefs at Ruth’s Chris Steak House share a healthy Ahi Tuna recipe


Tuna is not only delicious when cooked right, it’s also very good for you as it’s high in protein and vitamin D. Here’s a recipe for a healthy and simple dish that will make you feel good.

The recipe

•1 each ahi tuna
•1tsp blackening seasoning
•25ml canola oil
•30ml mustard sauce

•40g coleman's dry mustard
•30g dijon mustard
•220ml kikkoman soy sauce
•175ml (non alcoholic) beer

1 When ordered, in two separate plates, place oil in one and the blackening seasoning in the other. Dip all sides of the tuna into the oil and then into the seasoning on all sides.

2 Place tuna into a clean cast iron skillet and briefly sear for approximately 20 seconds. Blacken on all sides; cook fish RARE in temperature.

3 When the Ahi Tuna is seared of, place on cutting board and slice into 8 even pieces with a very sharp knife. Slide the knife under the tuna and place on the platter.

4 Using a squeeze bottle, drizzle 1/2 ounce volume of mustard sauce around the tuna.

5 To make the mustard sauce, measure out dry mustard and Dijon mustard and mix well into smooth paste. Slowly add soy sauce and whip to incorporate into mustard paste. When all soy sauce is added, slowly add (non alcoholic) beer and whip well. Make sure the mustard paste is fully incorporated.
