"Excellent and easy recipe. I ended up grilling them instead of pan searing. I'll definitely keep this recipe in my bag of favorites. "

For Tuna:
1 1" thick Sushi Grade Tuna Steak
1/2 cup Toasted Sesame Seeds
2 tablespoon Fresh Ginger Root; chopped
1 tablespoon Fresh Garlic; chopped
1/4 cup Soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
2 tablespoon olive oil
For Sauce:
1 cup Mayo
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
2 tablespoon horseradish
1 dash Worcestershire sauce

Original recipe makes 6




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!

A lot of flavor and easy to make. A lot of sauce and I cut this in half already. Next time I'll only make a fourth of this sauce. Adding this to my list of must haves!

This was a very good recipe. I didn´t make the sauce. But I did serve it with avocado slices.

I 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?

Barely sear on both sides. Should leave very rare in middle. [I posted this recipe.]
