SESAME CRUSTED AHI TUNA STEAKS over greens (Adapted from Becoming Domestic)

I LOVE ahi tuna! This recipe is perfect, and it’s such a refreshing cold dish that’s easy to make and tastes great on a hot summer day.

4-4 oz. sushi grade ahi tuna steaks
1 tbsp. sesame oil
4 tsp. white sesame seeds
4 tsp. black sesame seeds
kosher salt and pepper, to taste
Mixed salad greens

Pat tuna steaks with salt and pepper. Rub sesame oil on steaks. In a shallow bowl, mix black and white sesame seeds. Dip each steak into the sesame seeds, covering entire surface.

Place in a hot pan over high heat. Sear about 2 minutes on each side.

Soy-Ginger Vinaigrette

1 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1 tbsp. minced garlic
1/2 c. balsamic vinegar
1/4 c. red wine
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 tbsp. honey
2 tsp. sesame oil
1/2 tsp. ground mustard

Mix all ingredients together.
Serve as is over salad, or heat in the microwave for 30 seconds if just dipping tuna.

And I usually come up with some creative fun drink to go with a meal, but with this one I’m serving my all time favorite wine:
