Seared Sesame Tuna
Celebrate the ocean’s bounty with this easy "for two" recipe of Seared Sesame Tuna. Not only does this sesame-crusted tuna makes for a succulent steak, but minimal preparation plus quick cooking add up to a meal that's as good as (maybe even better than!) any you’d find in a restaurant. Try serving it a little on the rare side.
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.
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.
Add scallion and sesame oil to warm vinaigrette; drizzle over steaks.
