Tim Recher shares another great recipe – looks delicious!

Last night’s dinner is one of our house favorites–and it’s really quick!

SEARED RAW TOGARISHI TUNA WITH STIR-FRY BABY BOK CHOY, CARROTS, & MUSHROOMS DRIZZLED WITH WASABI AIOLI

  • 6 oz raw super fresh ahi tuna (sushi grade is best)
• 2 tsp togarishi spice (Japanese red pepper spice blend-it’s awesome)
• 1 tsp canola oil
• 1 tsp sesame oil
• 1 baby bok choy, chopped
• ½ cup carrots, sliced thin
• 6 each shiitake mushrooms (or whatever you have really, I used enoke)
• 1 tsp sambal (chili garlic paste)
• 1 tsp minced ginger
• 1 Tbs low sodium soy sauce
• .5 tsp wasabi powder, mixed w. 1 tsp water to make a paste
• 2 tsp greek yogurt, plain non fat
• Pinch of salt
• Juice from ¼ lemon
  1. Coat tuna with the togarishi
  2. Heat the canola oil in a pan until very hot and it starts to smoke
  3. Sear the tuna on each side quickly, less than a minute. We want the tuna to be raw in the center
  4. Remove from the pan and allow it to rest for 3-5 minutes while you finish the rest of the dish
  5. In another pan (preferably a very hot wok) add the sesame oil
  6. Immediately add the ginger & sambal, stir for 15 seconds
  7. Add the carrots, stir, and cover so it can steam for about 2 minutes
  8. Uncover and add the mushrooms & bok choy
  9. Stir-fry for about 2 minutes until the cabbage wilts and everything is hot
  10. Add the soy sauce, toss, turn off the heat and cover while the tuna finishes resting
  11. In a small bowl combine the wasabi paste, greek yogurt, and lemon juice
  12. Stir until smooth & season with salt—you can make this as hot as you like. Add a little water is it is too thick to drizzle it on the plate
  13. Slice the tuna across the grain and plate with the veggies & some brown rice if you like—those of you going Paleo could use cauliflower rice if you want
  14. Drizzle the whole thing with some of the wasabi “aioli”
