Seared Sesame Tuna with Ginger Soy Glaze


  • 2 tuna steaks
  • 2 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Step 1

In a small bowl, mix together the soy sauce, honey, rice vinegar, grated ginger, and minced garlic to create the ginger soy glaze. Set aside.

Step 2

Season both sides of the tuna steaks with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Spread the sesame seeds on a plate and press both sides of each tuna steak into the seeds, ensuring they adhere to the surface.

Step 4

Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet or non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

Step 5

Once the oil is hot, carefully place the tuna steaks in the pan. Sear them for about 1-2 minutes per side, depending on how rare you prefer your tuna. For medium-rare, aim for about 1 minute per side.

Step 6

Remove the seared tuna steaks from the pan and set them aside on a cutting board to rest.

Step 7

In the same pan, pour in the ginger soy glaze and let it cook for about 1-2 minutes, or until it thickens slightly.

Step 8

Slice the tuna steaks into thin strips.

Step 9

To serve, drizzle the ginger soy glaze over the sliced tuna and garnish with sliced green onions.

Step 10

Enjoy your seared sesame tuna with ginger soy glaze with a side of steamed rice or a fresh salad.
