Seared Sesame Ahi Tuna


I've never had ahi tuna unless it was on sushi, but the grocery store had them on sale and I thought it would be fun to try them out. I honestly have no idea if I made the recipe correctly or not, but it tasted pretty good so maybe I did.

I combined different parts of recipes I found online so I'm just going to call this my own creation.

    • 1 tsp. minced garlic

5. Remove the tuna steaks from the marinade and pat with a paper towel. Roll the tuna in the sesame seeds coating on all sides.
