Asian Stir-Fry with Seared Ahi

15 Jan

I hope a tanker of human waste explodes in front the home of the CEO of Monsanto. They have actually started an ad campaign just to let the public know that they care about us. They aren’t selling anything like most commercials you see on TV, they are just reassuring public how much they have done for farming and how much they care about our health and the health of the planet. Commercials like this one that make me so angry at the television I end up looking crazier than Charlie Sheen and Gary Busey put together, babbling away and ranting at an inanimate object.

I seriously can’t handle the stress of having all of this knowledge, ignorance truly is bliss.  Someone get me some chocolate before I have a stroke.

On to the Asian grill invasion:

  • Sashimi Grade Ahi Tuna- we used 6 filets
  • 5 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 onion
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 2 bunches of radishes
  • 5 cloves of garlic
  • powdered ginger and garlic
  • sesame oil
  • Wasabi flavored SeaSnax, finely chopped(optional)

Let your ahi come to room temperature for at least an hour before cooking.  You do not want perfectly seared ahi on the outside that is frozen in the middle.  Brush your ahi with sesame oil to keep it from sticking to the grates and sprinkle on both sides with garlic, ginger, salt and pepper and set aside.  If you are awesome, you will bust out your Weber Wok to make the stir fry.  Isn’t that thing f*cking wicked?! It is part of the cast iron Gourmet BBQ System.  If you don’t have one of these you can cry in the corner for a while and then get out any grill-friendly pan you have.

Have you ever had radishes in a stir fry? It is seriously incredible!  Chop all of your veggies and throw them in the wok with a couple tablespoons of water; just a precautionary measure to keep things from drying out.  Ok, now that we are all prepped let’s start-up our coals.  While your fire gets hotter than an illicit celebrity sex tape, you can go prep your sauce.

Whisk together:

  • 1 TB white vinegar
  • 4 TB sesame oil
  • 4 TB coconut aminos
  • 2 TB of powdered garlic
  • 2 TB powdered ginger
  • 1 TB Korean Red Pepper -this is a mild sun-dried red pepper flake, if you are going to sub for  regular crushed red pepper reduce the amount.

Cook your tuna for 90 seconds on each side for rare, and absolutely no longer than two minutes.  These babies cook quick so you have to babysit them.  When all your tuna is cooked, carefully swap out the sear grate for the wok, or just put your grill friendly pan on.  Brush your cooked ahi with a bit of the sauce and set aside while the veggies cook for about 10 minutes on a covered grill.

Pour your sauce over the veggies and put the cover it back up for another 5-10 minutes, or until everything looks cooked through.  Serve the stir-fry with sliced ahi and a sprinkle of wasabi SeaSnax on the top.

All of my pictures are terrible, I had one hell of a time trying to get a good picture of this dish for reasons I am not going to get into, because then I will start ranting again…so you are stuck with this…but trust me, it friggin wowtastic.

    Looks delicious per usual. I recently was on the receiving end of some home made smoked bacon! It is in my freezer waiting for the weekend to roll around so I can gobble it up. Finding out I have a friend with a smoker may be life changing… / make me slightly less jealous of all your grilling sessions!

      The Gourmet BBQ System is amazing, there is nothing better than cooking on cast iron. We are slowly acquiring all of the neat BBQ gadgets on the market, now we just need to find space to store them.

        No doubt, and Weber has a ton of them. Very cool. Smoke on!
