For all of you lovers of fish out there, we’ve got a recipe here that you won’t want to miss. Seared Ahi Tuna sits atop a bed of butter lettuce and persimmon, all of it covered in a drizzle of tangy vinaigrette. The sweetness of the persimmon provides a perfect counterpoint to the tang of the vinaigrette, while sesame sticks provide a satisfying crunch to the experience. This recipe comes from Karena over at sauced.typepad.com.
