Sesame Crusted Seared Tuna

John got to pick out the fish that we had for our last Fish Friday of Lent and he chose his favorite, Ahi Tuna. He loves this super easy recipe and I enjoy it too.

1/4 cup of black sesame seeds

1/4 cup of sesame seeds

salt and pepper to season

1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil

1 pound of ahi tuna, cut for 4 servings

Place sesame seeds into a flat bottomed container and combine. Using a skillet large enough to fit all the tuna pieces, add oil and heat on medium high. Season tuna with salt and pepper, if kids aren't eating, use some powdered wasabi. Place season piece of tuna in sesame seeds and press down to form a crust on each side. Add tuna to pan and cook until tuna reaches desired doneness. For rare, this about two minutes on each side.
