Ready in 1 hour
Seared sesame sushi tuna and sauce
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!
LonnieC 1y agoA 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!
megamco 2y agoThis was a very good recipe. I didn´t make the sauce. But I did serve it with avocado slices.
KP2005 3y 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 6y 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 7y agoBarely sear on both sides. Should leave very rare in middle. [I posted this recipe.]
