Grilled Ahi w/Spicy Pineapple Salsa
There is nothing more delicious than fresh ahi steaks cooked on the grill with a side of spicy salsa!
2 lbs fresh Ahi filet
2 tablespoons Thai or Vietnamese fish sauce
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice (optional: zest lime before cutting)
1 tablespoon Aloha shoyu
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon light brown sugar
Black pepper to taste
Spicy Pineapple Salsa:
¾ cup fresh pineapple chunks
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon light brown sugar
2 tablespoon fish sauce
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon garlic chili sauce
In a medium bowl, combine the marinade ingredients and whisk briskly to fully dissolve the sugar. Cut your ahi into servings and toss in the marinade, fully coating all sides. Marinate for at least 30 minutes.
To make the salsa, combine all the ingredients in a blender or processor and pulse until the salsa is combined but still a bit chunky. Set aside, salsa can be served at room temperature.
Grill your ahi on a medium high heat – 5 minutes on each side for fully cooked, or if you’re like me and prefer a little bit of pink inside, reduce that time to 3 minutes for each side.
