Ahi tuna Asian Hawaiian fusion

     Traveling is one of my favorite things to do  and i’m inspired by cuisine from all over the world. I wanted something light and easy for dinner that still Looked like I put in a lot of effort. I call this dish my Asian Hawaiian fusion kinda thing. I really like the texture of Ahi tuna and I feel like this glaze and the mild flavor of the tuna work well together. I’ve never cooked with Ahi tuna before so why not give it a try now?!  A quick fact about me; I don’t measure ingredients when I cook, so all measurements are approximate unless i’m baking. Here’s what you’ll need…


5 oz Ahi tuna 

1 teaspoon Garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger

1/4 cup Brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon Sesame seed oil

1 cup Soy sauce 

1/2 teaspoon Corn starch

1/4 cup Vinegar 

1 teaspoon Onion powder

1 teaspoon Paprika 

1 Mango

1 Avocado 

Bag salad 


First thing you want to do is combine garlic, sugar, ginger, sesame seed oil, soy sauce, vinegar, onion powder and the rest of the seasonings. If the mixture is too runny slowly add in corn starch until it forms a semi thick sauce. Marinate the tuna for a few hours. Make sure that both sides of the tuna are fully covered by the marinade.

While the tuna marinates, chop the mango and avocado for the salad and set aside.

Sear tuna on medium heat for about 1-2 minutes on each side for rare.

While the tuna cooks toss fruit into salad and grab your plates! If you made enough marinade you could also pour some over fried rice for the perfect combo.
