Sesame Tuna

The Best Food Cooking Partner questions any meats with red. Wary of disease and unpleasantness, he stays away from anything less than Well.

Things are changing around here. Yep. Things. Not everything. We still have the cat; the kitchen is still smaller than a bathroom; and the hardwood floors are still great for sliding around. So really, B.F.C.P. is starting widen his meatanese… meateatease.

I give you– Tuna Steaks! Medium Rare.

This is an easy recipe that doesn’t have a lot of ingredients and tastes incredible. Who could ask for anything more?

Sesame Tuna

1 lb Ahi Tuna steaks
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Soy Sauce
Sesame Seeds

(Yes. That’s it!! The ingredients list ends there.)

Place steaks onto cool saute pan.

Sprinkle both sides with olive oil.

Then with soy sauce.

Once it starts sizzling, let the steaks cook for three minutes (for medium rare, two minutes for rare). And then turn over to cook for another three minutes (or two if you’re cooking rare).

Remove from heat and top with sesames.

I served the tuna with Basmati Rice with Artichoke Hearts.
