    4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Coat the pan with 1/2 c of sesame oil. Wet your fingers with water and shake over the skillet, if it makes a sizzling sound when water hits the pan, it’s ready to use.
    5. Place the coated ahi in the skillet, cooking for one minute on each side (more or less depending on how well you want to cook the fish). Remove from heat, cut into slices and serve immediately.
