Sesame Tuna with Soy Miso Dressing

Sesame Tuna with Soy Miso Dressing

Steve Gold 0

"This recipe is served at a seafood restaurant in Royal Oak, Michigan. The sesame covered tuna is done medium rare inside (almost like sushi) and has a fantastic soy miso dressing drizzled over the top. One of the best seafood dishes I love!"

  1. In a shallow bowl, mix together 1/2 cup of sesame seeds, seasoning salt, white pepper, onion powder, wasabi powder, kosher salt and flour; set aside. In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs and milk.
  2. Dip tuna steaks in the egg mixture, then dredge in the flour mixture until well coated on both sides. Press on as many extra sesame seeds as possible, so it is well coated. Heat the vegetable oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Fry tuna steaks for 2 minutes per side, and immediately remove from heat. The inside of the fish should still be red.
  3. To make the soy miso dressing, mix together the miso soup mix and soy sauce. Heat in a small saucepan or microwave, and drizzle over steaks.

My husband and I absolutly love it, we'll be having this one often. I cooked his a little longer, he won't eat anything rare. My husband calls this Chicken Fried Tuna.....he's from the south.


This recipe calls for way too much flour (and that's after I cut back to 3/4 cup), leaving the coating far less 'sesame' than I had hoped it would be. Trying to add more sesame seeds after dredging it in the flour mixture was impossible because they wouldn't stick to the fish. The glaze was really salty - my boyfriend loved it, but I thought it was pretty average. Tip: Make sure you use a firm tuna!


This was sooo good I'll definetely make it again- and recommend it! I think next time I'd add even more water to the miso soup mix because I thought it would be good drizzled over asparagus too. I also served it with sticky rice. Fabulous!
