Seared Sesame Tuna Recipe
Serves 4

   Ingredients (slaw):

    • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
    • 1 tbsp. low-sodium tamari
    • 1 tbsp. mirin
    • 1 tbsp. rice vinegar (sugar-free)
    • 2 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
    • 3 cups green cabbage shreds
    • 1 cup Napa cabbage shreds
    • 1 cup bok choy, sliced thinly
    • ½ red bell pepper, sliced thinly
    • 1 carrot, sliced thinly
    • 3 scallions, sliced thinly

   Ingredients (tuna):

    • 1 tbsp. tan sesame seeds
    • ½ tbsp. black sesame seeds
    • Ό tsp. wasabi powder
    • 1 lb. tuna steak (about 4 individual
      4-oz. pieces, 2 inches thick)
    • 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 tbsp. fresh cilantro, minced


Directions: In a small bowl, whisk together sesame oil, tamari, mirin, vinegar, ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes. In a large bowl, combine cabbage, bok choy, red bell pepper, carrot and scallions; add dressing and mix well. Set aside for at least 20 minutes before serving. In a shallow bowl, combine sesame seeds and wasabi powder; coat tuna steaks with mixture, making sure both sides are covered. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Sear tuna in pan for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until both sides are well browned but tuna is still very rare in the center. Garnish with cilantro and serve with slaw.
