Ahi Tuna with Poblano-Corn Salsa

Dave and I have recently been adding more fish to our weekly menus. Since he grew up in Louisiana he's used to the freshest fish around, which we obviously don't have here in the Midwest. Luckily, we've found that Costco has seafood that is fresh enough for his taste and there is a great variety available.

We picked up two ahi tuna fillets to experiment with--it was our first try with ahi and it sure didn't disappoint. The only problem with this meal is that there really isn't a "recipe" to share. Basically, Dave took the tuna and seasoned it with salt and pepper then seared it on the grill. It was delish!

Ahi Tuna with Poblano-Corn Salsa
A Warren Original Recipe

As far as the salsa goes, here are the ingredients that were used:

1 poblano pepper
1 ear corn
1/2 cup red onion
Juice of one lime
2 T chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tomatoes, chopped
Salt and pepper

Basically, we did a rough chop on the pepper, corn and red onion and sauteed those ingredients with the lime juice, cilantro and red wine vinegar for about 5 minutes. After removing from the heat, the tomatoes were added and the salsa was seasoned with salt and pepper. We then chilled it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

We served this with wild rice and sliced avocado, creating a fresh and easy meal that's perfect for the upcoming summer months.
