Sesame Crusted Tuna Steak

The tuna is easy to make. You just crust the steak with sesame seeds and sear it for a few minutes on either side. You want to be careful not to over cook it as fully cooked tuna can be a bit dry. The seared tuna steak was really good. It was nice and moist and tender. The sesame seeds added a nice contrast in texture. You can serve tuna steak on rice with some sauce and veggies on the side or on some fresh arugula or spinach salad.
