Awesome! Just what I was looking for. I'm new to the fish world and had something like this in a restaurant. I sliced mine paper thin and put it on a bed of greens with mandarin oranges, pecans, red bell pepper and a ginger dressing. OMG!

I am a bachelor with limited cooking experience. I love sesame crusted tuna when I dine out, so thought I'd give this recipe a try. This is a very simple recipe to prepare and the results were great! The tuna turned out perfectly and the flavor from the roasted sesame seeds was great! I think the only thing that could have improved the result would be to add a small amount of some sauce. Something wasabi or ginger based would be an excellent match.

Fantastico, RESTAURANT QUALITY, straight to Top Favorites of 2009 Cookbook, DH says it's a bargain even when yellow-fin tuna is $20/pound at Wegman's. Couldn't find black sesame seeds, so used poppy seeds instead to offer the visual contrast, with no detraction from the superb taste. To sate our appetites, I served this with Emerald Rice Bake (Broccoli) #361987, which was also delicious. Thank you for posting this recipe, Miraklegirl! Made for Top Favorites of 2008 Tag, on recommendation of Maito.

I have eaten seared tuna n restaurants and loved it but had not tried making it at home until a few days ago. Of course I turned to food.com for the how-to and found this recipe. It was perfect, just what I was looking for, and my tuna was perfect. I must admit to not having any black sesame seeds, so I just used white and it still was awesome. thanks, Miraklegirl, for a great recipe!!!!

Cook for longer than 10 sec on each side, and it's NOT seared.

This was great! We used cracked black pepper because we didn't have black sesame seeds. I think it would be better as written, though (all sesame seeds). We made this with #311191. It needed the sauce. I wouldn't have liked it as much without it.

We tried this tonight and it was very good. We topped it with a pat of garlic butter and it was wonderful! I would definitely make this again!

Very good. Because my tuna was frozen, gasp, I had lemon, soy sauce and wasabi, as an accompaniments. I also took KateL's advice and served it with Emerald Rice Bake, yummy. I think this would also be good with a nice romaine salad and wild rice. Thanks for posting!
