Ahi Tuna Rub

CP   |   July 2018

Its summertime and Southern Style Spices has a fresh Ahi Tuna Rub that will send your culinary imagination to the islands. Close your eyes and you can almost smell the magnolias and hear the ocean waves on the beach. grom the soy sauce tang to the hint of wasabi, this blend is bursting with an array of flavors. It’s a rub not only perfect on Yellowfin and Bigeye Tuna, but you can also use a dash of the sweet, savory rub on Salmon, Swordfish, or Mahi Mahi Steaks. 

Spice Talk Tip:

Whisk two tablespoons olive oil, a pinch of lemon zest and Ahi Tuna Rub together. Then rub mixture on a Tuna Steak.
