Grilled Ahi Tuna

Here is a recipe that is easy and fantastic! All ingredients and instructions are per one half pound of fresh ahi. What you need: one half pound of fresh ahi, two tablespoons of original yakitori sauce, one teaspoon of wasabi, a little bit of butter or non-stick cooking spray, and some heavy duty aluminum foil. Here’s what you do: start your grill on high heat to warm it up; in a small rameken, combine two tablespoons of original¬†yakitori sauce with one teaspoon of wasabi and set aside; make a foil “boat” out of heavy duty aluminum foil by folding up the sides, spray with non-stick foil or place some butter on foil to help prevent sticking; place ahi on top of foil, place on grill, on high, add one tablespoon of mixture on top of ahi and close grill (I cooked it for 3 minutes); turn fish over and add another tablespoon of mixture for three more minutes, then remove; slice about one quarter to one half inch thick slices and serve. If this is not done enough for your liking, I cooked my daughter’s for six minutes per side. Trust me, the three minute version is heavenly! We served it with a green salad.
