[recipe] Sesame Seared Tuna

- Pat dry tuna steaks, rub a bit of sesame oil, and cover in sesame seeds
- Seared on high heat with a little olive oil, a couple of minutes per side

- Sauce: Can buy Ponzu sauce, or, take 2 part low-sodium soy sauce, then 1 part sweet (honey / brown sugar) and then 1 part sour (rice wine vinegar / lemon), plus dash of sesame oil. Sliced green onion or cilantro will make it look pretty, if not just throw some sesame seeds in there.

- To serve: Slice tuna, dip in sauce, enjoy.

Impressive looking, delicious, and ridiculously easy.
