Seared Ahi Tuna Steak


Tuna is a meaty fish with beautiful texture, but it is also very neutral when it comes to flavor. For the culinary artist, this ruby-red rich fish is a blank, umami-rich canvas upon which to create dishes bright with color, taste, and aroma!

My Blend No.10 has just the right combination of savory, sour, salty and smoky to make this seared Tuna preparation delightfully delicious and visually dazzling to the eye.

Black Pepper, Coriander, Leek, Onion, Sumac, Parsley, Oregano, Thyme, Rosemary, Lime, Sea Salt, Herbs & Spices
