Where to get top shelf ahi in Seattle area?

I've got a hankerin for some yummy seared ahi. (The hankerin usually comes when the crab leg hankerin is on xmas vacation...)

I've never bought sushi grade tuna before - anybody know any good places to get some?

hiya sheriff, i don't know about seattle, but i buy sushii grade tuna, salmon, octopus, and yellowtail in an asian (technically korean) market near my house. they have a sushi section that offers whole pieces of the fish for making sushi at home. octopus legs are really cool to freak people out at home too.
as far as seared tuna, ahi is great, but you could do it with other types of tuna as well. i like to buy yellowfin that is frozen and cryopacked right on the boat. rolled in toasted sesame and pan seared, it is deelish served with a ginger/soy/sesame oil dipping sauce.
The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things

wussup buck? bidibidibidi - lol

Thanks for the prep tips! I like the sauce suggestion - I'll prolly use something of that sort. For the tuna, I was imagining a mustard seed/peppercorn mixture of some sort... we'll see what happens...
