This is a combination of two fabulous marinades. My kids absolutely love it and ask for me to make it all the time! And, just by using a gluten-free soy sauce, the entire recipe is gluten free! Serve with wasabi paste and rice.

  • Spread sesame seeds onto a plate. Remove tuna from marinade and discard marinade. Press tuna into sesame seeds until evenly coated.

  • Heat olive oil in a cast iron skillet over high heat until very hot; cook tuna in the hot oil until cooked to desired doneness, 30 seconds to 5 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

Grilling option: do not coat tuna with sesame seeds! Spray grill with non-stick cooking spray for grills. Heat grill until very hot. Grill tuna on each side for 2 minutes (for medium rare).
