Sesame Crusted Tuna with Citrus Salad

20 Mins

Prep Time: 20 minutes



  • 2 Tangelos, segmented and cut into bit-sized pieces
  • 3-5 cups Winter Rainbow Salad Mix
  • 2 8 oz. Yellowfin Tuna Steaks
  • Black Sesame Seeds
  • 3 Tbsp. Lemon Juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 Tbsp. White Miso Paste
  • 2 Tbsp. Rice Vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. Honey
  • 1 Tbsp. Sesame Oil

In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice, miso paste, rice vinegar, honey, and sesame oil. Use a fork to stir briskly, until the miso and honey is dissolved. Taste and adjust for preferences. In a large mixing bowl, toss Winter Rainbow Salad Mix with dressing, massaging slightly. Add tangelos, cover and refrigerate while cooking the tuna.

Drizzle each tuna steak with olive oil and season with salt and pepper on all sides. pour sesame seeds on a plate, and coat each steak by laying each seasoned side against seeds. Set aside on a cookie sheet.

Melt butter in a flat bottomed pan over medium high heat. When butter is foaming, place a steak in the pan. Allow to sear for 2 minutes, then flip to the other side. Allow to cook for another 2 minutes. Repeat with other steak. Allow the cooked tuna to rest for a few minutes before slicing into ¼ inch thick slices.

Plate a layer of the salad, then splay sliced tuna steak across the top. Sprinkle with leftover sesame seeds.
