Asian Influenced Sesame Soy Tuna Steak

By: Sheila Reynolds

You don’t have to go to a fancy restaurant to enjoy tuna perfection! This Asian influenced Sesame Soy Tuna Steak recipe is the perfect combination of Asian flavors to compliment the amazing richness of the fresh Tuna steak. Try to find the best quality tuna you can as the higher the quality, the more it will melt in your mouth. This is one of my favorite fish recipes!


½ cup red wine vinegar
½ cup chicken broth
3 tbs. ginger, grated
3 tbs. soy sauce
2 tbs. brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbs. black sesame seeds
2 tbs. sesame seeds

1 lb. mustard greens
2 cloves garlic
1 tbs. rice wine vinegar

Salt and pepper, to taste
Olive oil

Fried onion slices, for garnish
Halved grape tomatoes, for garnish.


1. Combine the first six ingredients in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and let cook until thickened, about 8 minutes.
2. Press the black and white sesame seeds into the tuna. Season with salt and pepper. Heat a pan to medium high and cook the tuna, about four minutes, before flipping. Cook for an additional 3 minutes and then remove to a platter.
3. Sautee the garlic in olive oil in a Dutch oven until fragrant. Add the greens and cook until wilted, about five minutes. Add vinegar, salt and pepper to season.
4. Drizzle a plate with the reduction. Plate the fish and greens with the fried onions and grape tomatoes.
