Ingredients

Ahi Tuna

6 (1-inch-thick) ahi steaks, about 6 ounces each

3 teaspoons sesame oil, divided

1 tablespoon black sesame seeds

1 tablespoon white sesame seeds

Soy Ginger Lime Sauce

2 teaspoons minced ginger

6 tablespoons lime juice

4 tablespoons soy sauce (plus 2 more teaspoons)

1 teaspoon sesame oil

2 tablespoons honey

2 teaspoons water

½ teaspoon red chili flakes

Directions

For Sauce

Whisk together all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and set aside until ready to serve

For Tuna

Place a saute pan large enough to hold all the ahi steaks in one layer into the oven and heat well for about 5 minutes.

While pan is heating, lightly brush steaks using 2 teaspoons sesame oil. Combine the sesame seeds on a plate. Set steaks on plate with sesame seeds, turning and pressing to coat both sides.

When steaks are coated, add remaining oil to hot pan; heat well and add steaks. Cook for 45 seconds, turn over, and cook for 45 seconds more. Remove and slice thinly to serve.
