Ahi tuna marinated in sesame oil, ginger and chile garlic sauce

It is very hard to get good seafood in a land locked state such as Arizona.  So when I see wild caught seafood on sale, I try to take advantage of it! Despite lack of good seafood, our whole family does love it, even our sons.  

This Sesame Ginger Ahi Tuna is really quick to make–you could even work it in as a weeknight meal!

I marinate the fish with a mixture of tamari, sesame oil, chili garlic sauce, lime juice and ginger.  I just put the ingredients in my Ninja blending cup and put the fish and marinade in a ziploc bag.

You can let it sit for as little as 30 minutes, but we prefer a couple of hours or more.

Next, my husband grills this rare to medium rare. We do like sushi around here!  But if you are squeamish about this, feel free to grill longer, but I feel it takes away some of the flavor.  

While the ahi is marinating,  I prepared roasted broccoli and steamed brown rice.  I seasoned the broccoli with the same flavors as the fish. The brown rice was really quick–the frozen rice that you can microwave for a few minutes.  Give it a try and let me know what you think!
