Crusted Ahi Tuna

Crusted Ahi Tuna

While thinking about all of the religious holidays we have and the different types of foods we are acustomed; I thought fish would be a good symbol to represent the life of Jesus. He performed numerious amounts of miracles; he healed the sick and blind, he made the dead rise and with a piece of bread and a few fish he fed thousands of people so what better symbol than fish!

I started my search for a recipe, I wanted something very simple, not very complicated but delicious and full of flavor. I came across lots of recipes but this one in particular caught my eye. It's simple enough, comes out beautiful and everyone was pleased with it. Give it a try!



1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon dijon mustard

2 teaspoons soy sauce

2 teaspoons sriracha sauce

1 lime, juiced

2 teaspoons crushed garlic


1 filet ahi tuna

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp red pepper flakes

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Parsley for garnish


1. In a small bowl whisk together the ingredients for aioli. Taste and adjust proportions of ingredients for personal preference.

2. Mix together the bread crumbs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. Spread out on a plate.

3. Cut your Ahi into 1 to 1 1/2 inch strips.

4. Roll the Ahi in the bread crumb mixture, coating all sides.

5. Heat a heavy skillet to high heat. Add in the olive oil and let it start to sizzle. Put in Ahi, turning about every 30 seconds to sear all 4 sides.

6. Slice the Ahi and serve with the aioli.

Quick Tip: You can replace the eggs and olive oil with Mayonnaise.
