The Best Tuna for Ahi Tuna Sushi Salad Bowls
The key to a delicious sushi salad dish is high-quality fish like Omaha Steaks Yellowfin Tuna Steaks. Found in the waters of the Pacific Ocean, these yellowfin tuna steaks are a favorite among seafood lovers. Also known as Ahi tuna, the Hawaiian name for yellowfin, these seafood steaks have a firm texture and meaty flavor, making them perfect for this recipe.
How to Make an Ahi Tuna Sushi Salad Bowl
1. Thaw Tuna Steaks
Start by thawing the desired number of tuna steaks. To thaw in the refrigerator, cover and let thaw overnight. For faster thawing, place tuna steaks in a sealable plastic bag and remove as much air from the bag as possible, then immerse in cold water for 30 minutes.
2. Pan-Sear Tuna
After the tuna steaks are thawed, pat dry with paper towel and pan-sear in a hot skillet until golden-brown on both sides.
3. Add Miso Glaze and Bake to Desired Doneness
Brush miso glaze evenly over steaks and bake for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until a medium-rare doneness is achieved.
4. Assemble Sushi Salad Bowl
Serve flaked or sliced miso tuna over an arugula and iceberg lettuce salad with our tangy wasabi dressing, pickled carrots, cucumber, edamame, pickled ginger, and radishes.
