Directions

  1. Pour the teriyaki sauce into a shallow dish or bowl, and place tuna steaks in the sauce to marinate. Cover, and allow to marinate for about 45 minutes at room temperature. The steaks will cook more evenly if they are not cold.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place tuna steaks in the hot oil, and pour in the teriyaki sauce. Squeeze juice from the lemon over the steaks, and sprinkle with sesame seeds. When the bottom is light brown, flip the steaks, and cook until browned on the other side. The center will still be slightly red. Season with sea salt and pepper.
  3. Place the tuna steaks onto serving plates, and garnish with grated carrots. Serve the pan drippings as a dipping sauce.

Wonderful recipe, however, I cooked this a bit differently. I used sesame oil instead of the evoo, quickly seared the tuna on both sides at a very high heat and did not add the teriyaki sauce into the pan. I didn't want my tuna to "poach". Instead I placed the sauce into another pan to heat up and once the tuna was out of the skillet I poured the sauce over. PLEASE make sure you only sear your tuna. You only want about an eight to a quarter of an inch of your fish to be cooked. Tuna should be prepared like a rare steak. Think Pink; you won't be sorry! Thanks so much for a great recipe!

Very easy and very good. My husband and I ate this with steamed vegetables, and used the leftover teriyaki sauce to pour over the them. I also did not put any salt on the tuna, and they did not need it after the sauce. Thanks for the yummy recipe.

This is excellent, I make it all the time. It's nice to have such a gret, guest worthy dinner that you can cook in less than 10 minutes! The only change I make is to not use the sesame seeds as I couldn't find any, and I left out the salt since the teriyake sauce is salty enough. I serve is with brown rice and steamed snow peas. The grated carrots really make it. 5 stars!
