FURIKAKE GRILLED TUNA

FURIKAKE GRILLED TUNA

We were recently gifted with some tuna from our sailing/fishing friends and wanted to put together something worthy of their generosity.

In my search, I landed on what looked like a winner from The Domestic Man.  Simple, very quick to prepare and cook, plus I was introduced to a new-to-me seasoning, Furikake, a combination of sesame seeds and nori seaweed.  Well, I thought to myself, I can make my own, which is what I did.

All this to say, my dear Galley Peeps, I have created a very simple, very quick to prepare Asian-inspired fish dinner for you complete with three…count them…three delicious creations in one post all with printable recipe options.

This summer will take us on a sailing voyage on the Saint Lawrence River and our hope is to do more fishing along the way.  The idea of becoming more self-sufficent provisioning-wise is very appealing.  Our fishing friend has supplied us with some new lures and we have a very good fileting knife so now as Galley Kat I have to come up with some delicious and easy ways to prepare the catch.

This next recipe fits all the criteria.

2-3 tbsp cooking oil (I used grapeseend)

time to get grilling

Rub all surfaces of the tuna with Bragg.

Coat all surfaces generously with Furikake

Heat cooking oil and sesame oil in your grill  pan until it begins to smoke.

Sear tuna quickly on each side.

Timing  will depend on the thickness of the tuna and preferred doneness.

I found 45 seconds per side was perfect for a medium rare result.

Slice tuna and serve with dipping sauce on the side.
