Mad Hunky Grilled Ahi Tuna Lettuce Wraps

Kind of a big blog title. :)

Found some great looking Ahi tuna steaks at the store not long ago, I don't see these often so it was quite a treat for me.
First I let them marinade for a couple hours in olive oil, then seasoned with Mad Hunky General Purpose rub, and sprinkled with black and white sesame seeds.

heated up the Grill Mates on the Char Broil grill...
I like using these for fish.

I gave the Grill Mates a quick brush with oil before adding the Ahi...

Just seared them a short time on each side...

The tuna was soooo tasty.  Really loved the addition of Mad Hunky dry rub.. will do that again for sure!

I made the lettuce wrap with a bit of slaw dressed with an asian ginger onion dressing.

It was a nice treat!  Hope the store carries more ahi in the future. :)


Chris said... mean that you don't actually RAISE your own tuna on the farm? LOL

Genius idea on using the GrillGrates upside down, I have not seen that technique.
