Ingredients

FOR THE VINAIGRETTE, SIMMER:

FOR THE TUNA, COMBINE:

Cook tuna a few minutes on each side, then remove steaks from the pan to rest. Residual heat will cook them until they’re just pink inside.

Instructions

For the vinaigrette, simmer vinegar, broth, sherry, ginger, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium-high heat until reduced to ¼ cup, 5–8 minutes. Keep vinaigrette warm over low heat.

For the tuna, combine black and white sesame seeds on a plate. Heat vegetable oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high.

Press one side only of each tuna steak in sesame seeds. Sear steaks, seeds side down, 3–4 minutes, flip and cook 2–3 more minutes. Transfer steaks to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm.

Add scallion and sesame oil to warm vinaigrette; drizzle over steaks.

Press seasoned tuna steak firmly into black and white sesame seeds to coat fish on only one side.
