  1. In order to begin on this seared tuna steak recipe, first mix the soy sauce, honey, mirin, and sesame oil in a small bowl. Divide this mixture into 2 equal parts – into one part, mix in the rice vinegar and then set this aside for use later as your dipping sauce. Depending on your own personal preference, you may add a little more honey or use less sesame oil.
  2. On a dish, spread out the sesame seeds. Cover the tuna steaks with the soy sauce concoction and thereafter press them into the sesame seeds such that the steaks are well coated.
  3. In a large skillet, you should next heat the olive oil until it is very hot over high heat. Place the steaks into the pan and sear them for about thirty seconds per side. I normally cut the steaks such that they are about one half or three quarter inches thick before I sear them. I don’t want them too thick because they may end up burning before they cook; and this way, they turn out pink and not red in the middle – just the way I like them.
  4. Serve your steaks with the dipping sauce and some wasabi paste.

    Very tasty! I will definitely cook this again! My son ate it, but my daughter wouldn't, she didn't like the seeds on the fish or the fact that it wasn't cooked all the way through.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
