This is a local appetizer dish made & served here in my home state of Hawaii. it can be made many many different ways. But this is a simple easy & yummy way to make it. I make it just about once or twice a month when I make fried fish & or what I call my lualua night. Also here in Hawaii we call Blue Fin Tuna by it's Hawaiian name "Ahi"
