Kaala Masala Ahi
Yeah, I don't know what the fuck that means either. I got some sweet ass ahi at the store the other day and I decided to blacken it. Turns out every fucking idiot in this country uses the same blackened spice mixture for ahi as they do for catfish. Get a clue shit for brains! I found this Indian spice mixture called kaala masala, took a very loose interpretation of it, and made the best blackened ahi ever. Let's begin:
Look at these beautiful specimens. The one in the back still needs to be trimmed but I just wanted to show you the color of affluence, peasant.
In a small bowl, mix 1tsp sesame seeds, 1tsp tumeric, 1tsp brown sugar, 1/2tsp coriander, 1/2tsp ginger, 1/2tsp cumin, 1/4tsp cayenne, 1/4tsp black pepper, and 1/8tsp cinnamon. The "authentic" shit has cardamom and cloves but I didn't have the former and I hate the latter. Pat down the top and bottom of your ahi but keep the sides clean.
