Ingredients

For tuna:

  • 2 8-ounce tuna steaks
  • 2 tablespoons yellow sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons black sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

For Wasabi Whipped Cream:

  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon wasabi powder
  • Dash of fine sea salt
  • Scallions for garnish

Instructions

  1. Start with wasabi whipped cream, as it will actually take longer than the tuna steaks. In a medium mixing bowl, whip heavy whipping cream using a hand mixer until stiff and bodied, approximately 3-4 minutes. Add wasabi powder and salt, continuing to whip. Set aside.
  2. Combine both types of sesame seeds in a shallow plate, dredge and press both sides of tuna steak into seeds.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Sear both sides of each tuna steak, approximately 2-3 minutes for rare.
  4. Remove and top with wasabi whipped cream.
