grilled ahi tuna sliders
1 Teaspoon sesame oil
1 Teaspoon soy sauce
1 Teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 Teaspoon garlic, crushed
1 Teaspoon onion powder
2 Whole Tuna Filet, 8 oz each, sushi grade
To Taste pineapple
To Taste brown sugar
12 Whole Buns, Slider
2 Tablespoon mayonnaise
As Needed lettuce
As Needed Avocado, Sliced
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, 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. Dont 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!
