Sesame Ahi Tuna

Any fish lover can appreciate this recipe as it is packed full or flavor and super easy to make. Switch up with fresh tuna versus salmon and add some serious flavor using our Asian inspired products! Give it a try!




2 lb. tuna steaks, about an inch thick

3 Tbs. Honey Ginger White Balsamic vinegar

1/4 c. Japanese Roasted Sesame Oil (ours- if you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out)

1 Tbs. fresh, grated ginger

1 c. roasted sesame seeds

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 Tbs. Soy Sauce

1 tsp. Miso paste

A pinch of Roasted Garlic sea salt (ours)

1 tsp. Eureka Lemon Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Fused Agrumato)- for drizzling after it’s done cooking! You can also use an unflavored premium extra virgin like PICUAL!



  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, ginger, soy sauce, miso paste, and minced garlic. Add the tuna steaks and turn to coat; allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove the tuna steaks from the marinade, and press into the sesame seeds to coat. Pour the marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer until the sauce has reduced and thickened, 5 to 10 minutes.
  3. While the sauce is cooking, sear the tuna in a small amount of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat to desired doneness. Pour sauce over tuna to serve.


We served our Ahi Tuna steaks with steamed potatoes, Asian coleslaw and asparagus!
