Cooking time: 10

Serves: 4


1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon mirin
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
4 6oz tuna steaks (bright red in color)
1/2 cup sesame seeds
wasabi paste
1 tablespoon olive oil


1. In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, mirin, honey and sesame oil. Divide into two equal parts. Stir the rice vinegar into one part and set aside as a dipping sauce.

2. Spread the sesame seeds out on a plate. Coat the tuna steaks with the remaining soy sauce mixture, then press into the sesame seeds to coat.

3. Heat olive oil in a cast iron skillet over high heat until very hot. Place steaks in the pan, and sear for about 30 seconds on each side. Serve with the dipping sauce and wasabi paste.

*if you need to adjust the quantity go here

I adjusted the sesame oil due to the fact that it overpowered everything else.
