DIRECTIONS

  • Combine black and white sesame seeds in bowl. Dredge tuna in seed mix, rolling gently to cover completely.
  • Heat olive and sesame oils in large nonstick pan over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium and place tuna in pan, searing until white seeds are lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Turn carefully so seeds don't fall off. Cook 2 minutes more. Remove from heat and let rest a few minutes.
  • Place tuna on bottom halves of rolls. Top each one with sweet wasabi ketchup. Cover with toll tops and serve.
