Mix soy, garlic, ginger and pepper.
Marinate tuna in soy mixture in zip lock bag in refrigerator for 1-4 hours
Remove tuna from marinade and coat sides with sesame seeds
Sear in non-stick pan with olive oil until brown on each side. DO NOT overcook. Should remain very rare in center.
Slice thin (1/8-1/4" thick) at angle.
Mix sauce ingredients and chill
Serve with sauce on the side. Can be served hot or cold. Can prepare ahead and serve as a cold appetizer. Excellent either way!

KP2005 9 months agoExcellent and easy recipe. I ended up grilling them instead of pan searing. I'll definitely keep this recipe in my bag of favorites.
saracantoraye 4 years agoI liked this recipe a lot - the marinade was delicious and the sesame seeds added a great crunch. My only complaint is that the 'sauce' portion of the recipe made an absolute TON of sauce - enough for easily 10 times the amount of tuna we made. Can you change the sauce to be more proportionate to the tuna?
andysaul 5 years agoBarely sear on both sides. Should leave very rare in middle. [I posted this recipe.]
