Make it at Home: Ahi Tuna Appetizer

It seems only fitting that while at Zoetry Agua Punta Cana, our guests enjoy delicious seafood. That’s why, we offer a number of seafood dishes in our restaurants that are sure to delight our visitors. Today, we thought we’d provide you with the recipe for one of our favorite appetizers — Ahi Tuna. If you try this recipe at home, let us know what you think in a comment below!


  • 2 (6-8 ounce) ahi tuna steaks
  • 2 Tbsp dark sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp of grated fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 green onion (scallion) thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice

What to do: 

  • Mix the marinade ingredients together and coat the tuna steaks with the marinade, cover tightly, and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Heat a non-stick skillet over medium high to high heat. When the pan is hot, remove the tuna steaks from the marinade and sear them for a minute to a minute and a half on each side. If you like your tuna a little more well done, feel free to cook them a little longer.
  • Remove from pan and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices. Serve with mango or pineapple salsa.
