Fresh Fried Ahi (Blue Fin Tuna)

Vanessa "Nikita" Milare


I have lived in Hawaii my whole life. I grew up going to the beach & catching fresh fish for dinner, or dad would bring them home from a weekend fishing trip. I dont go fishing as much now, but I still buy only fresh fish. If am not eatting it "RAW". I am frying the fish. Is yummy with some fresh cooked rice & a bowl of vnger & shoyu... Good.

How to Make Fresh Fried Ahi (Blue Fin Tuna)


  1. First pre-heat the oil. Then once hot sprinkle the flour into the hot oil. Then slice the Ahi into steak chunks. Then lightly salt& pepper both sides of the fish.
  2. Then fry on both sides for about 3 to 4 mins on each side.
  3. Drain on a plate covered with a paper towel.
  4. Special Tip: I use 1 to 2 pieces of bread to soak up the oil.
