Sesame Seared Ahi

"The key to success is a very hot pan!"


INGREDIENTS:
3/4 cup sesame seeds
4 ahi tuna steaks, 1” thick
2 tablespoons canola or grape seed oil (do not use olive oil)

PREPARATION:
1.     Spread sesame seeds on a flat plate.

2.     Place each steak onto seeds and press; coat both sides.

3.     In a large skillet, heat oil over high heat.

4.     Place steaks in pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side.  Be sure the pan is extremely hot; this will ensure the browning of the seeds without overcooking the steak.

5.     Serve immediately.


Note:  For a fancier presentation, place steaks on cutting board and slice into 1/2" strips; arrange on a plate or over rice by overlapping strips.
