Sesame Grilled Tuna

Submitted by:
A recipe for those Tuna lovers out there who just can’t get enough omega-3's!

Preparation time: 10mins
Cooking time: 15mins

Serves: 4


4 (1/3 lb. each) tuna filets
2 teaspoons sesame seeds
3 teaspoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt


Heat the grill.

Rinse tuna filets under cold water; pat dry with paper towels.

Place the sesame seeds in a small hot skillet for about 1 minute, shaking the skillet gently, until just browned. Remove immediately from heat. Place in a small bowl.

Add the remaining ingredients to the bowl. Brush this mixture onto both sides of tuna filets and grill to desired doneness, turning once.

It is a good idea to remove tuna BEFORE it is to the desired doneness. It will continue to cook and will be dry if overcooked.
