Grilled Ahi Tuna Sliders
two, 8 oz. Tuna Filets, Sushi Grade
1 tsp. Sesame Oil
1 tsp. Soy Sauce
1 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes
1 tsp. Garlic, Crushed
1 tsp. Onion Powder
as needed Lettuce
as needed Cilantro
1 Avocado, Sliced
2 Tbsp. Mayo
12 Slider Buns
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, soy sauce, pepper flakes, garlic, and onion powder. Pour the mixture over the tuna filets, and refrigerate.
When ready to cook, start the Z Grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set temp to High (450F) and preheat, lid closed (10 to 15 minutes).
To sear, place the filets on the front edge of the grill until there are grill marks, then flip and move to the center and cook 3-5 more minutes. Don?t overcook it! Tuna is best when it is medium rare, to medium.
While the tuna is cooking, sprinkle the pineapple with brown sugar and grill towards the front of the grill until you see grill marks.
Remove the fish and pineapple; build the burger as follows: bottom bun, mayo, lettuce, tuna, grilled pineapple, avocado, and top bun. Enjoy!
