Trivia Wednesday!

Well good grief how did it already get to be Wednesday? This week is flying! Last night for dinner we did Ahi. I love Ahi tuna steaks. But Keith and I differ substantially at how we like it prepared! I want mine one step up from raw, whereas Keith wants his cooked through. What about you? 

How do you Ahi?   

Ahi Goodness


  • 2 ahi tuna steaks
  • 1 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic powder

Melt butter in a small casserole dish (in a microwave). 

Place tuna steaks into the melted butter and coat all sides. 

In a small bowl, mix together wasabi powder, coarse black pepper and granulated garlic powder. 

Sprinkle tuna steaks with wasabi mixture on all sides and lightly rub into the steaks with your fingers. 

Grill or pan fry to your liking!

All the people who guessed correctly will have their names put into a drawing for a really cool prize. But this Thursday I will also be announcing the WINNER!! (woot woot) So have fun and don’t go googling to cheat! haha! 🙂

  1. Yum, yum…I LOVED me some ahi tuna before I went veg! 🙂

    I have no idea here…so I’m going to say B?

  2. That tuna looks so good! I’m going to say Wendys!

  3. I like mine rare as well. Mike likes his with no pink.

    I have no idea either so i’ll say A since I remember going through them when I was younger.

  4. My guess is MacDonald’s

  5. yum! this picture made me drool…I love raw ahi too. they have a great ahi salad at Rock Bottom if you have one near you. It’s sliced thin and just barely seared on the outside. Delish!

  6. I can’t do raw fish. I even order my salmon well done. I have no clue about the trivia, so I’ll go with McDonald’s.

  7. Raw! You are tough! Hmmm…A?? i’m lovin’ these trivias girl 😉

  8. I also have no idea, so I’ll say C.

    That tuna looks awesome!

  9. I vote MacDonald’s. I have to eat my fish cooked through. Smoked salmon is as raw as I can get. Can’t even eat sushi/sashimi with raw fish. I wish I could say it’s the texture, but I can’t even bring myself to try it – it just grosses me out! Glad you enjoy it – I hear it’s wonderful!

  10. Hi Kelly…I love all the recipes you post! How do I go about getting a cookbook?

    Congratulations on qualifying for your marathon. I also ran the 3M half marathon, although I am more of a novice runner 🙂 I was wondering what your workouts look like after a run like that? I know you did the elliptical the other day, but when do you start running again?

    I vote for McDonalds on the trivia 🙂

    • Tasha….first off CONGRATULATIONS on completing 3M! That is awesome girl!!

      Second, the cookbook…I can mail you one or we can meet up (if you are in Austin) and I can deliver! 🙂 Whatever works for you!!

      Third, on weeks after a run I try to take it easy from running. I usually hate recovery weeks but I know my body needs it. I try to lay off the running and I do a lot of stretching!! On a normal week I typically log about 55-60 miles but this week I will probably only get in about 25-30. Hope this helps!!

  11. I would have to say McDonald’s!

    Trivia Wednesday was a lot of fun… thanks!!

  12. I will say McDonald’s

  13. I am not sure but my guess is McDonald’s… haven’t they been around the longest?

  14. I’ll go with…McDonalds? Since they are the king of fast food and all!

  15. My vote is Wendy’s

  16. mmm… I like ahi tuna! But I’m terrified of preparing fish. I have no idea why, but I just can’t do it! It turns out awful every time…

    I would say McDonalds… is it bad I’m craving some fries and a cheeseburger now? It’s 9:30 in the morning… that’s bad…

  17. I would guess C and say rare tuna all the way!

  18. hi kelly, new to your blog and im glad I found it.

    good looking tuna there. im too much of a chicken to eat rawish tuna.

    my answer would be Sonic.

  19. Me and Mike went to Hawaii many years ago and we ate Seared Ahi Tuna with Wasabi Mayonaise at the hotel bar EVERY night! We love it just the way you have it cooked there, Kelly. But we are big fans of sushi too. I miss it oh so much right now…4 weeks left and counting!

    My trivia guess is Wendy’s.

  20. Probably McDonalds because they did everything first.
    I’m with you on the ahi!

  21. I’m gonna go with Wendy’s!

    Your ahi tuna looks perfectly cooked!! YUM!! 🙂

  22. I’m going ot go with Wendys, because when I ate fast food, it was my favorite!

  23. Burger Kign! Did you hear burger king is opening up “resturants” with bars where you can order beer?

    • No way…I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that no one else has ever thought to serve beer at a fast food place. I bet it will sell though!

  24. I LOVEEE ME SOME TUNA STEAKS!! where did you get those?! they look fab!!
    hmm im guessing burger king!

    • Those tuna steaks are actually from Whole Foods…I picked them up the other day for a splurge! We love ahi…reminds me of our honeymoon in hawaii!

  25. I wanted to guess McDonalds – but that seems too easy so Im saying Wendy’s.

  26. I vote for A. McDonald’s

    While I don’t really eat seafood, I have had bites of ahi tuna. Really delicious, and yours looks SO good.

  27. YUM! I love ahi tuna it looks perfect!!! hmmm as for the trivia I would go with wendys! i really have no idea though! I got this amazing seasoning from TJ max that is so delicious on ahi tuna steaks, it has sesame seeds and salt and spicyness in there, it is so beautiful and delicious!!

  28. awesome idea for a contest!! Im going to guess McDonalds. I think they have been around the longest too? Your ahi tuna looks amazing too girl!

  29. I think it’s Sonic because didn’t people use to come out in roller skates to take your order there?

  30. Hey!
