Sesame Seared Ahi Tuna

Total Time:






Skill Level:



  • 1 ahi tuna steak (per adult)
  • wasabi paste
  • sesame seeds
  • sesame paste
  • dijon mustard

How to Make It

  1. Season each Ahi steak with sea salt and pepper, then brush with a nice Dijon mustard, and press mustard side down into a plate of sesame seeds.
  2. Heat a little sesame oil (just enough to lightly coat the pan) in a large pan, until it begins to smoke. (Hint— have the oven fan running before you start; the smoke alarm will make you jump) and carefully lay the tuna seeds-side down in the hot oil.
  3. Count to 30, and then carefully flip the tuna over. Cook for another 30 seconds, and remove it to a plate to serve.
  4. Whisk a little wasabi past in into a 1/4 cup of mayonnaise for a quick Wasabi Aioli, which pairs perfectly with the tuna.
