Sesame Seared Tuna

Who says a weeknight gourmet dinner is unattainable and too time consuming? With the 12 ingredients listed below and a couple pieces of gorgeous sushimi tuna, this beautiful meal can land on your dinner plate in well under 30 minutes. I wow-ed Mark with this one and he even admitted it might be one of his favorite bites yet!

Sesame Seared Tuna with Wasabi-Ponzu Sauce

recipe from Cooking Light

1 Tbsp. chopped green onions 2 Tbsp. low- sodium soy sauce

2 Tbsp. fresh orange juice

1 Tbsp. rice vinegar

1 tsp. lemon zest

2 tsp. fresh lemon juice

2 tsp. honey

1 1/4 tsp. wasabi paste

1 tsp. grated, peeled fresh ginger

2 tsp. olive oil

3 Tbsp. sesame seeds

1 Tbsp. black sesame seeds

2-4 Sashimi grade Tuna Steaks

Combine first 10 ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Now introduce yourslef to one of the very best dipping sauces you will ever encounter. Ever. Now set aside and resist the urge to slurp up the sauce by drinking straight from your small mixing bowl.

Heat a quick pour of olive oil in a medium non-stick skillet on medium heat. Combine seeds in a shallow dish. Splash a small amount of soy sauce on each sides of the tuna steaks, just enough to get it wet. Create a "dipping station", shown above, and dredge tuna in sesame seeds, coating the entire steak. Sear for 3 minutes on each side. Serve with Wasabi-Ponzu sauce.
