Sesame seared tuna with soy dipping sauce

Easy, tuna steaks coated with sesame seeds and quickly seared. You could also cook them on the BBQ. This Japanese-inspired dish is served rare, so be sure your tuna is fresh and of good quality.

Ingredients Serves: 4
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon mirin (Japanese sweet wine)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 4 tuna steaks
  • 5 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • Wasabi paste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Preparation: 15min
Cook: 5min
Ready in: 20min

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.

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 on both sides.

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

Bbq teriyaki tuna steak

Tuna and teriyaki both come out wonderful on the BBQ, so it is only natural to combine the two flavours as done in this recipe.

Ingredients Serves: 4
  • 1 cup (250ml) teriyaki sauce
  • 3/4 cup (200ml) olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 tuna fillets
  • Oil for brushing on grill hotplate

Preparation: 5min
Cook: 10min
Extra time: 30min marinating
Ready in: 45min

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the teriyaki sauce, oil, garlic and pepper. Place the tuna in the bag. Seal the bag with as little air in it as possible. Give the bag a good shake to coat the tuna fillets. Marinate for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
Meanwhile, preheat the barbecue for high heat and lightly oil cooking grill hotplate.

Remove tuna from marinade, and place on barbecue. Cook for about 10 minutes or to desired doneness.
Note: Allow 30 minutes for the tuna to marinate.
