  • In a shallow dish, combine the two types of sesame seeds and stir to mix.
  • Season the tuna with salt and pepper and dredge in the sesame seeds, coating the tuna evenly.
  • In a non stick pan, warm the oil until smoking, arrange the tuna in the pan (making sure not to overcrowd) and cook until the white sesame seeds start to turn golden underneath (around 1 minute).
  • Carefully turn the tuna over and cook for about another minute.
  • Transfer the tuna to a cutting board and cut into 1/4 inch thick slices.

    Have made this exact recipe 5 times and it is the easiest and tastiest recipe ever! I use a cast iron skillet and get an excellent crust with a very rare center. We serve with wasabi and soy sauce!

    Great recipe, so easy. Be sure to not skip the salt and pepper step before adding the sesame seeds! No longer than 10 seconds on each side, otherwise it's overcooked. The perfect sauce to serve with this is a spicy mayo. 1/2 mayo, 1/2 siracha - with more or less of the other to taste.

    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!!!!
