Grilled Medium Fatty Tuna with Black Pepper

Grilled Medium Fatty Tuna with Black Pepper

Medium fatty tuna is still soft when grilled, so I cooked it teriyaki-style with spicy black pepper.


Medium fatty tuna
2 slabs
Green pepper
1 clove
★ Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
★ Mirin
2 tablespoons
Coarsely ground black pepper

1. Sprinkle the fillets with some salt and plenty of coarsely ground black pepper. Repeat for the other side, then sit aside for about 10 minutes. Right before you grill, coat with flour and shake off any excess. Chop green pepper into bite-sized pieces.
2. Heat 2 tablespoon vegetable oil in a frying pan. Slice garlic thinly and add to the frying pan. When the garlic starts to smell nice, add tuna and grill. When both sides are browned, pour sake and cover the pan to steam-fry.
3. When the tuna is thoroughly cooked, add the green peppers and stir-fry lightly.
4. Mix ★ ingredients for the sauce and add to the frying pan. Mix evenly and simmer for a while.
5. Arrange on a plate. Serve with the sauce, and it's done.
