This Asian Style Tuna Steak is delicious, easy to make and only require a hand full of ingredients. Not to mention it’s ready in only 10 minutes. I made this easy, fresh yet very tasty and flavorful tuna steak and served it on a bed of green leafs. It is served with an easy and delicious tamari/soy dressing that has a bit of spices and adds that extra spice to this dish. This dish is perfect to serve either as a starter or as a main dish.
I am the biggest fan of fish and seafood. I don’t care if some fish & seafood dishes are more appropriate during spring and summer, I eat them all year round. But if I do crave fish yet want something that is a little more filling, make a tuna steak. Tuna is such a nice middle thing between fish and a beef steak. It sure has a bit of fishy taste, but the texture is a lot like beef, yet its lighter than a steak.
I love to sear my tuna steak in sesame oil. I think it makes such a good combination with the tender and half raw meat. One recommendation that I can give is to spend that extra money on a good quality pieces of tuna instead of buying the cheaper or even frozen ones. It makes the biggest of difference. I love when the steak is quite raw, so I only fry my steak for 30-60 seconds (depending on the thickness). If you fry it all the way through it will get very dry and boring, and you will have waisted your money. Even though I love my steak very raw, you can easily fry it for 1-2 minutes on each side. Just make sure it still has a little bit of redness left. Just as delicious as a perfectly seared tuna steak (no matter if its very raw or less raw) an override tuna steak might be the most boring thing I have ever tasted. So make sure to not over fry it.
