This recipe sounds kind of fancy, but is really quite simple. Serve it up the next time you have friends aboard.
- 3 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp honey mustard
- 1/2 tsp toasted sesame oil
- 1 tsp grated fresh ginger root
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 4 tuna steaks (about 1″ thick
- 1 package or bunch fresh arugula
- 1/4 tsp sea salt, or to taste
- 1/4 cup sesame seeds
In a small bowl, whisk the vinegar, soy sauce, mustard, oil, ginger and garlic. Using about 2 tbsp of this vinaigrette, brush the entire surface of the tuna steaks. Toss the remaining vinaigrette with the arugula.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the tuna with salt. Pour the sesame seeds on a plate and dip each tuna steak into the seeds to coat all sides. Lightly coat steaks with cooking spray and cook for 2 minutes per side or until medium-rare. (Reduce the heat to medium if the seeds begin to burn).
Place equal portions of arugula onto each of 4 plates and top each with a tuna steak.
