Grilled Sesame Tuna Steak

You can’t beat a local catch of fresh yellowfin tuna! In this recipe, tuna steaks are marinated, then encrusted with sesame seeds, and grilled to perfection. Serve with green beans almondine for a complete and satisfying meal.

 

Makes: 2 servings  Total Time: 40 min

 

Ingredients

2  tuna steaks (1-inch thick, 6 ounces each)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup sesame seeds

Marinade
2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1 scallion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon lemon juice

 

Directions

  1. In medium bowl, whisk together all ingredients of the marinade.
  2. Season tuna steaks with salt and pepper.
  3. Add tuna to marinade. Turn to coat evenly. Refrigerate 30 minutes, turning once.
  4. Oil grates on grill and heat to medium high.
  5. Remove tuna steaks from marinade and dredge steaks (both sides) in a plate filled with the sesame seeds.
  6. Grill tuna for 2-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare steaks (slightly pink in center).

NOTE: Do not over-marinate the tuna. Acids like lemon, or vinegar, will start to cook the fish.
