Seared Ahi Tuna Salad with Beets, Onion, Grapefruit, Avocado, Arugula, Mixed Greens and Citrus-Mint Vinaigrette $10
The Ahi name refers to two different types of tuna, Yellowfin and Bigeye. Ahi means “fire” in Hawaiian, and references the smoke that was produced from the fishing line going over the side of the boat so quickly. The Ahi species of tuna is valued for not only being a sport fish but also for their delicious flavor. In Hawaii, Ahi are most abundant in the spring and summer, though they can be fished year-round.
