10 Min

Tuna steaks are so popular at restaurants; so why not save money and make your own Sesame Crusted Tuna at home? Our easy tuna steak recipe is light and healthy yet full of flavor.

What You'll Need

  • 4 tuna steaks (4 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds

What to Do

  1. Rub both sides of the tuna steaks with the sesame oil and garlic, then season with the salt and black pepper.

  2. Place the sesame seeds in a shallow dish and press the tuna into the seeds to coat completely.

  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the coated fish and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until desired doneness.


If sodium is not a concern for you, drizzle this with light soy sauce just before serving.
