Ingredients

  • ½ pound ahi tuna, cubed
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 teaspoons green onion
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • ¼ to ½ jalapeño, minced, no seeds
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ cup diced watermelon, in pieces the same size as the tuna

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients except for salt and watermelon. Taste for seasoning before adding salt. The dish needs a bit of salt, but remember the soy and sesame contribute to the sodium load.
  2. Make sure the marinade completely covers the fish, place in a sealable container, and put in the coldest part of the fridge for a few hours up to a day. Before serving, fold in watermelon. Serve with chips, avocado, pickled ginger and sriracha, or like me, chip-sized slices of watermelon.
