Sesame Seared Tuna Recipe
Easy, great tasting tuna coated with sesame seeds, and quickly seared. This tuna is served rare, so be sure to use a good quality fresh tuna.

i loved the tuna. sooo good. my bf asked if we can eat this every week! a few suggestions that i have: adding a bit of grated ginger along with juice to the searing marinade really spices up the recipe. instead of coating the tuna with sesame seeds then searing them, i bought toasted sesame seeds and then sprinkled the sesame after my tuna was cooked. make sure the tuna is seared on medium heat b/c high heat burns the tuna and causes lots of smoke. chop up some scallions and sprinkling them over the tuna along with the sesame makes the whole plate look more attractive (i.e red and green contrast)
Absolutely delicious ! I have also marinated the tuna in the sauce for a couple of hours before searing and the flavors really show. I made this as a first course for a dinner party once and used both toasted sesame seeds and black sesame seeds( both found in Asian isle )to coat. Served with Asian style cole slaw It turned out so elegant !
I have used this recipe three times and it is great! I could not find the Japanese wine, but I substituted a sweet Spanish wine that worked well. I served the tuna on top of some mixed green lettuce leaves which added color and texture. I have trouble remembering to separate the sauces before adding the vinegar.

This simple seared tuna and gomae salad is from the flip side of the sushi bar menu. You don't have to be a master sushi chef to master it.
Tuna steaks are marinated in a ginger-sesame marinade and pan-seared with sesame seeds creating a crowd-pleasing, Asian-inspired meal.
No need to alter this recipe because it is perfect as is! The key is to not over sear it. I sear only about 30-45 seconds each side and it is perfect. My wife insists that it be served with Japanese-style sesame green beans also found on Allrecipes. BRAVO!
