Blackened Ahi

Oh my goodness my friend came by my house with a bunch of fresh caught Ahi! My husband LOVES blackened Ahi. One of his favorites. Great for me! It is SO easy to make.

Here is how I make my ahi seasoning:
2 1/2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried thyme
Combine all ingredients thoroughly. Store in an airtight container. This makes plenty for several times of cooking. Sprinkle the spice mixture on a plate.
Heat up a skillet on high.. Dip Ahi in spice blend and press down to make sure it is coated.
 Turn over and do it again. Once pan is nice and hot add 1 TB canola oil and put Ahi in.
Sear until crisp… 1-2 minutes. Flip over and do it again. A perfect Ahi is crunchy on the outside and raw on the inside.
