Ahi tuna that’s super easy to make. You just cover the steak with sesame seeds and sear it for a few minutes on both sides. However, be careful not to over cook it as the meat can dry out very quickly. In many parts of the world eating it raw is the only way to do it…so even a quick kiss to the grill is just fine as well. You will probably find that the sesame seeds really add a pleasant contrast in texture.
I typically serve the sesame encrusted tuna on steamed rice rice with some soy or teriyaki sauce and possibly some steamed broccoli or other green veg on the side.
