Seared Sesame Crusted Ahi Tuna

Serves: 1


5 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons low sodium chicken broth or water
2 green onions finely chopped
2 tablespoons about a 2 inch piece ginger root peeled and chopped
1 clove Garlic crushed
4 4 ounce tuna steaks
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
5 tablespoons white sesame seeds
2 teaspoons canola oil or sesame oil


Combine vinegar, chicken broth, green onions, ginger, and garlic in a bowl. Add the tuna steaks, cover and refrigerate for 20 to 40 minutes.

Remove tuna from marinade and season with pepper. Reserve the marinade. Spread sesame seeds out on a plate. Press seeds onto both sides of the tuna steaks, some seeds will be left over.

Heat a nonstick grill pan over high heat. Add oil. Sear the tuna one minute on each side. Remove from the pan, reduce heat to medium and add the marinating juices. Bring marinade to a boil for a few seconds, until it thickens slightly, and pour over the tuna. Serve immediately.
