Seared Ahi Tuna Salad

Ahi tuna is one of my favorite fish for it’s exquisite texture and mild flavor that lends it well for raw or seared dishes. Ahi tuna salad & poke bowls are frequent around here. Ahi is big in Hawai’i and I’m not complaining. Even if you’re not a sushi aficionado, give Ahi a try!

This salad is easy to make & extremely satisfying. Once you make this at home you will never pay $20 for it at a restaurant again, you’ll just make it yourself.

This will make one large salad or two appetizer sized salads.
