This is a signature dish at Brick; there's a wonderful contrast between the seared ahi tuna and the lentils.

  2. Dust the tuna with the Szechwan pepercorn, let sit for 10-15 minutes, and then sear rare on all sides.

  7. Curry Paste:
  8. Mix together the red curry paste, lemon juice and canola oil.
  9. To serve:

      I paid a visit to Brick last week to see and taste for myself what Chef Marsh is bringing to the table. I must say that it's a big and welcome change from before. He's got something special going. Take this Szechwan Dusted Ahi - he's paired it with creamed lentils that are absolutely fabulous. But the combination is what's intriguing. I've never had a dish like this, and now I can't stop thinking about it. Yeah, it's that good. Highly recommend a trip to Brick; and I will be trying to recreate this magic at home. This guy is one to watch.

        I haven't tried cooking Tuna with lentils but it sounds great. I could give it a try. Thanks for sharing.
