This recipe for seared ahi tuna with chimichurri sauce was provided by Kitchen Confidante and it can be completed in 20 minutes. Ahi Tunan on the menu? Try pairing with Merlot, Pinot Noir, and rosé Wine. Though fish is often paired with white wine, 'meatier' fish like ahi tuna can absolutely go with red wine. A Rosé will also pair nicely, particularly if your ahi tunan is prepared with ingredients better suited to a white wine. The Taltarni Three Monks Cabernet Merlot with a 4 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 15 dollars per bottle.. It is actually a very popular recipe.
