Black Sesame Seared Tuna Steak with a light soy & lime dressing


Serve Tuna Steak marinated in a tangy refreshing soy dressing and coated in black sesame seeds. The Tuna steaks are then seared in a hot skillet and served with a gorgeous caramelised shallot and bean salad.

To make this recipe low salt when using soy sauce, I always use Kikkoman brand.

Tuna steak makes a great alternative to beef steak.  It is a light tasty meat, that is not fishy at all, but certainly does not taste like beef or lamb either.

Tuna can get dry and chewy when overcooked, so keep a close eye on it when searing on the skillet.  The centre should be pink, although some people like their tuna rare in the middle.
