Default Pan-Seared Sesame Crusted Tuna Steak

I am an inexperienced seafood cook, so I love ordering this dish when I go out to dinner.

Thought I'd give it a try myself tonight and I'm tickled pink! Delicious!

Got a small, frozen yellow fin tuna. Thawed it and made this ATK recipe, with the Ginger-Soy sauce and wasabi sauce.



Pan-Seared Sesame Crusted Tuna Steaks (ATK)

cup sesame seeds

4 tuna steaks, 8 ounces each and about 1 inch thick

2 tablespoons
vegetable oil

Salt and ground black pepper

Serve with Ginger-Soy Sauce with Scallions if desired.

Pat tuna steaks dry with paper towel; use 1 tablespoon oil to rub both sides of steaks, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Press both sides of each steak with sesame seeds to coat.

Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over high heat until just beginning to smoke; swirl to coat pan. Add tuna steaks and cook 30 seconds without moving steaks. Reduce heat to medium-high; continue to cook until seeds are golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes. Using tongs, carefully flip tuna steaks; cook, without moving steaks, until golden brown on second side, about 1 1/2 minutes for rare (opaque at perimeters and translucent red and cool at center when checked with tip of paring knife) or 3 minutes for medium-rare (opaque at perimeters and reddish pink at center).

Ginger-Soy Sauce with Scallions

soy sauce

cup rice vinegar

cup water

2 teaspoons sugar

1 medium scallion, sliced thin

2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger

1 teaspoons toasted sesame oil

teaspoon red pepper flakes
