Here is a recipe for seared Sashimi by Chef Mark Ellman of a restaurant here in Maui called Avalon's in Lahaina (this is my husband's favorite and he doesn't like sushi or sashimi) FOR THE SAUCE: Boil all the ingredient except the green onion in a heavy, medium saucepan over high heat until liquid is reduced by half, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Mix in the green onion.

MEANWHILE, PREPARE THE FISH: Mix the herbs together on a plate. Brush sesame oil over the ahi. Roll the Ahi in the herbs, coating it completely.

Heat a heavy, large skillet over high heat until very hot. Add the ahi and sear 20 seconds per side. Cut the ahi into ⅛ inch thick slices.

Spoon the sauce onto plates. Fan the ahi over the sauce and serve Posted to EAT-L Digest 15 Sep 96 From: Steve & Elizabeth Key <drkey@...> Date: Mon, 16 Sep 1996 11:15:36 -1000
