At one time or another, everyone has hung his or her head in disappointment when their mom slid that plate of soggy tunafish sandwiches in front of them. Don’t despair – and don’t give up on tuna. Here on Ocean Isle Beach, fresh tuna is easy to find and perhaps can even be caught during your fishing charter. Whether you catch it or buy it locally, we have some great recipes for those of you looking to fall in love with tuna or for those who are already fans of this incredible fish.
Seared Ahi Tuna
This recipe, which is called “Six-minute Seared Ahi Tuna Steaks” is easy to make, delicious, and one of the more traditional ways to prepare tuna. Plus, everyone loves honey and soy sauce which are the main ingredients of the marinade in this dish.
Who needs to go out and spend a lot of money on sushi when you can make it right at home! Sushi doesn’t need to be intimidating to make, and in fact, it’s rather simple. Spicy tuna rolls are not only easy, but a good way to introduce your family to the wonderful world of sushi. For all the tips and details check out The Spruce Eats.
Tips for cooking while on vacation
One of the best advantages of booking an Ocean Isle Beach vacation is the fact that you have access to well-appointed kitchens. All of our homes come with the basics already stocked in the kitchen. The only thing you will likely need to bring are any specialty items. If you have a favorite sushi knife or need skewers you might want to bring those with you. If pan searing in anything but your grandmother’s cast iron pan is a sin, well, you need to bring that with you. Other than that, we have the basics covered.
If you want to prepare something on the next level this is the dish for you. This dish is created with salt and sugar cured tuna (surprisingly easy to do) and includes vodka-soaked tuna. Ok, we told you this one is a bit different, but we wanted to give all you foodies out there a challenge. For more on this dish, head back over to the The Spruce Eats.
