One seafood dish you have to try from any Corolla restaurant that specializes in seafood is Ahi Tuna. A combination of sauces, thick tuna steaks, and pan searing creates a taste sensation no seafood lover can resist. Like all great seafood it needs to be procured fresh from the sea and prepared while it is still in the peak of freshness.
Searing helps bring out the best flavor in food. This is especially true with fresh caught tuna. Tuna, low in fat, has a delicious natural flavor. The combination of this thick texture with seasonings and an intense burst of heat culminates in an incredible flavor combination.
Why searing? Searing seafood is a cooking technique that is designed to lock in the juices of a piece of meat, seafood, and in this case tuna. By placing the tuna steaks on an intense amount of direct heat locks in the juices and helps bring out the flavor. It is not to unlike the way they sear steaks at a gourmet steak restaurant to lock in the flavor by sealing the exterior of the meat.
But in addition to searing your the tuna, there are other critical factors that can make a huge difference to the taste of seafood. Naturally we use only fresh tuna. And then this tuna is going to be dressed in our battery of Asian sauces which include:
