seared sesame tuna
The quality of your tuna will make or break this recipe. Inferior cuts are not suitable.

Southern Bluefin Tuna fillet (500grams) cut into desired length/shape.
1/2 cup light soya
1/4 cup honey
200g sesame seeds
Knob of butter
Wasabi paste

Marinate the tuna pieces for half an hour in a mixture of 1/2 cup light soya and 1/4 cup honey.
Sear for 3 seconds each side of the tuna on a flat hot pan with a knob of butter.
Place back in marinade and chill for ten minutes to thicken the honey.
Toast sesame seeds in a moderate oven stirring until golden brown. Important to take the time to toast the seeds until a tan colour.
Use the marinade in a similar fashion to an egg wash to coat the tuna and then crumb the tuna with the sesame seeds and wrap tightly in glad wrap.
Chill for 10 minutes then remove the gladwrap and carefully slice tuna. Avoid seeds on the face of each slice. Garnish with wasabi & light soya.
