Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

Need a gluten free, dairy free, and pescatarian main course? Ahi Tuna Ceviche could be a great recipe to try. This recipe makes 3 servings with 128 calories, 18g of protein, and 4g of fat each. For $2.44 per serving, this recipe covers 15% of your daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. Not a lot of people made this recipe, and 3 would say it hit the spot. If you have ahi tuna steak, even roasted sweet potato, juice of lime, and a few other ingredients on hand, you can make it. To use up the soy sauce you could follow this main course with the Panna Cotta with Strawberry-Vin Santo Sauce as a dessert. From preparation to the plate, this recipe takes around 45 minutes. This recipe is typical of South American cuisine. All things considered, we decided this recipe deserves a spoonacular score of 62%. This score is good. Try Margaritan Ahi Tuna Ceviche, Tropical Tuna Ceviche, and Cebiche De Atun ( Peruvian Canned Tuna Ceviche) for similar recipes.

Ahi Tuna works really well with Merlot, Pinot Noir, and rosé Wine. Though fish is often paired with white wine, 'meatier' fish like ahi tuna can absolutely go with red wine. A Rosé will also pair nicely, particularly if your ahi tunan is prepared with ingredients better suited to a white wine. You could try Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.2 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 58 dollars per bottle.

Duckhorn Napa Valley Merlot

This wine shows aromas of sweet plum sauce, vanilla, chocolate, cedar and butterscotch with big, forward black cherry and black berry fruit in the mouth. A balanced middle with a hint of toasty oak is paired with a nice bite from rounded tannins, and a long pleasant finish. This wine pairs well with grilled meats and wild game with herb-infused, wild-berry sauces, hearty pasta dishes and Pacific Northwest Salmon.

Instructions

  1. In medium bowl mix soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, rice vinegar, Serrano pepper, lime juice, mint, and sesame seeds. Then add diced tuna and toss to coat.
  2. The tuna is ready to eat as soon as it's tossed and coated but you can marinate it for a few minutes if desired. The tuna will start to turn white almost immediately, a sign that it is cooking from the acidity of the lime juice. It is not necessary to cook the tuna. In fact, it is best served immediately while it is melt-in-your-mouth tender and moist.
  3. Serve immediately by mounding atop crackers, chips, micro-greens, or even roasted sweet potato slices.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Tuna is high in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, but it can also be high in mercury. We recommend trying smaller fish, such as herring, sardines, and mackerel, in place of tuna. With the right recipes, you can get used to the fishier taste. If you really want to stick with tuna, choose light tuna over albacore and limit consumption to about one can a week.

  • You can reduce your sodium intake by choosing lower-sodium soy sauce.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a gluten-free soy sauce!

Price Tips

  • Fresh herbs can be expensive, so don't let them go to waste. If you have any leftovers, you might be able to freeze them. The Kitchn recommends freezing hardy herbs like rosemary and thyme in olive oil, while Better Homes and Gardens suggests using freezer bags to freeze basil, chives, mint, and more.

Cooking Tips

  • Fresh herbs should be added toward the end of the cooking process — even at the very last minute?especially delicate herbs like cilantro, basil, and dill. Hardier herbs like bay leaves, rosemary, and thyme can be added earlier.

  • The average fresh lime contains 2 tablespoons of lime juice (just in case you are substituting bottled lime juice).

  • Don't have fresh herbs? Substitute dried herbs, but use about 1/3 less because dried herbs are more potent than fresh.

Green Tips

  • Tuna's sustainability heavily depends on the fishing spots and methods. Inform yourself about where and how your tuna was caught or choose more widely sustainable options, such as herring, sardines, or mackerel instead.
