Restaurant Style Ahi Tuna With Spicy Mayo Recipe


I’m beyond excited about my most recent discovery! Who knew that restaurant style seared ahi tuna at home could be so easy? If I ever go to a restaurant and find seared ahi tuna on the menu, I don’t have to look any further. It’s always my go-to. When I found out about the new Bumble Bee SuperFresh® line of frozen seafood products, including ahi tuna, I couldn’t wait to give it a try!

Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna is the first ever sushi quality “thaw and serve” packaged seafood product. It stays frozen during the processing and is never fully defrosted or re-frozen during preparation, so their quality is guaranteed as on par with what you expect from fine chefs who know how to source the best product for their restaurants. This dish is high in protein and richly seasoned with pure, simple ingredients that let the fish shine through!

I have no idea why serving ahi tuna at home never occurred to me. Eager to try out my latest discovery, I thought it would be fun to plate it as it’s served at my favorite seafood restaurant, with a side of wasabi paste, sliced pickled ginger, soy sauce with a squeeze of lime, and a homemade Japanese spicy mayo sauce.

The prep for Bumble Bee’s SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna is absolutely none other than removing it from the freezer and allowing it to defrost in the refrigerator for 3 hours prior to serving. Remove the tuna from the airtight sealed bag and serve, that’s it. Since the prep was so easy, this gave me time to come up with a spicy mayo recipe that was so good, I found myself dipping my chopsticks in it long after I’d finished my entree.

I excited to serve this to guests over the upcoming holidays. Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Seared Ahi Tuna is a delicious treat with a side of soy sauce and wasabi, in a classic Nicoise Salad or served alongside your favorite seafood accompaniments. At my favorite seafood restaurant, I always order mine with pan seared asparagus in olive oil and sea salt and a side of sushi rice. Oh, and don’t forget the saki!
