  • 4 Tuna Steaks

    Heat 2 tbsp. of Olive Oil in a large nonstick skillet. Heat to medium high heat then add the tuna steaks. Be careful to not overcrowd the tuna in the pan. Cook them for about 2-3 minutes per side, flipping only once, until the white sesame seeds start to turn golden. Remove from the pan and serve hot. The tuna should still be pink in the middle. Enjoy!
