DIRECTIONS

  • Mix together ingredients 2 through 5 to make a marinade.
  • Marinate the tuna steaks for at least 10 minutes (I tend to buy sashimi grade tuna medallions/steaks).
  • Pour the two oils into a frying pan, preferably non-stick or anodized, and heat over low-medium flame.
  • Place the tuna steaks in the hot oil.
  • Pour one teaspoon corn starch onto each tuna steak, then one teaspoon sesame seeds and half the fresh ground black pepper.
  • After about 4 minutes, flip the steak over. Cover the other side with 1 teaspoon sesame seeds and the rest of the fresh ground black pepper.
  • Cook for another 3-4 minutes.
  • Flip the tuna steak over one last time for about 1 min to toast the sesame seeds.
  • Let rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
