Sesame Seared Ahi Tuna

Ingredients:
  • 2 Ahi Tuna portions
  • 2 Tbsp dark sesame oil
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp of grated fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 green onion (scallion) thinly sliced (a few slices reserved for garnish)
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
You'll find the sake, mirin, and white miso not only in Japanese markets but also in most well-stocked supermarkets.
Preparation
  1. Mix the marinade ingredients together and coat the tuna with the marinade, cover tightly, and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  2. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium high to high heat. When the pan is hot, remove the tuna steaks from the marinade and sear them for a minute to a minute and a half on each side.
  3. Remove from pan and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices. Sprinkle with a few green onion slices.
