Ahi Tuna Family Style Platter

Ahi Tuna Recipe with Soy Sauce Dressing

I have a saying that makes me smile every time of I think of it.  “Old Friends are like Old Shoes.”    Old friends are comfortable, there is no break in period, they fit just right and there is no need to impress them.  They love you just the way you are. Think about it, they really are like your favorite pair of shoes that fit just!  I am excited to be spend this #SundaySupper with one of my dearest friends and his family and share this Ahi Tuna Recipe with them.

We love cooking together and Paul couldn’t wait to take me to his favorite market.  We visited Carmine’s Market and saw the most beautiful Ahi Tuna and that was all the inspiration we needed.  Ahi Tuna Salad Family Style is perfect for a crowd and so much fun to cook together.

I love ahi tuna, I love mixing it up with a spicy wasabi mayo (like a spicy tuna roll) and serving it over salad instead of in a roll for a healthier option. This looks fabulous as well. Thanks for sharing.

Ahi Tuna has my heart. <3 I could eat it three meals a day, every day.

For us, #SundaySupper is a time to sit – block everything else out – and share our day as a family.
