Roasted Tomatillo and Garlic Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
Use fresh lime juice instead of water. I've been doing it this way for a few years ever since I got a food processor. The only way to make Tomatillo Salsa.

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
This is the only way to make Tomatillo Salsa. I've been at this for a few years ever since I got a Quisinart food processor. I use 15-20 Tomatillos cut in half so more of the skin gets charred. I also add Jalapenos, also halved. If I want it really hot I add Habaneros. Garlic cloves and Onions too. Fill up a baking sheet with all of it and broil it til it's half burnt. Pour all of it into processor and then add fresh lime juice to taste. Add a bit of Cilantro after charring if desired. Sshhh! Don't tell anyone!

Super Easy Seared Ahi Tuna

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Don't bread Ahi like that photo #1 unless you're trying to make Tempura Ahi :) It's not Catfish. If you do bread it, make sure it doesn't look like it's deep fried. It’s fun to experiment with Seared Ahi and all the possible infusions of flavor. Sweet, Salty, Bitter or Sour. Create what the palette desires or modify it to go with any Good Wine or Crafted Brew :) I like the Sesame oil and Parmesan idea so I'll be experimenting a lot. Here's how I do it: Cut thick even pieces and coat in a Pepper/Herb Mixture. I like to mix herbs like Dill, Dried Crushed Lemon(natural), Poppy Seeds, a pinch of Clove Powder is surprisingly good, Dried Chopped Onion or Garlic. Sear each side in Oil for 10 to 30 sec. depending on thickness and your rareness preference. 1/8in at most. (Seared doesn't mean deep fried or fully cooked) The herbs seared but inside should be pink and tender. I add Garlic Cloves to my oil. For the dipping sauce I use a Ponzu or light Teriyaki with a bit of citrus. Soy is salty for me. Wasabi (Horseradish, Spirulina) Powder is best but it slowly gets milder so use it 5-15 min. after the paste is made for best result. Good Pickled Ginger may be hard to find. Store bought Pickled Ginger is too sweet for me so I add Cider Vinegar for a time. BTW, it's easy to make but if you use Cider Vinegar it won’t turn pink. Good compliments with your Ahi are Bitter Greens like Herb Salad or Baby Spinach, Green Sprouts(Radish Sprouts for me) Cucumber sliced thin and sliced Papaya Skin.
