  • Summary

    I’m a fan of spicy and sweet. Chili garlic ahi tuna recipe has both a little spice from the chili and a little sweet from the brown sugar. The perfect combo. When it comes to Asian flavors, this recipe is a no brainer because there are just 6 ingredients including the tuna. You can also use this marinade on any type of fish like cod, tilapia, salmon, or even add to pork, steak, or chicken. It’s very versatile, flavorful, and delicious. I like to serve my chili garlic ahi tuna with brown rice and sautéed bok choy. You can save some of the marinade before adding it all to the tuna to cook the bok choy with. Or check out another recipe for bok choy: Spicy Soy Sauce Bok Choy.
