The Fixings:

For the marinade:

The Cooking:

  1. Cook rice.
  2. Combine marinade ingredients. Use half to cover tuna steaks, and marinate for 10 minutes.
  3. Heat non-stick skillet to med-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Pat dry tuna steak and pan sear 2-3 minutes each side to desired doneness. Remove and let rest.
  4. Sear diced vegetables in the same pan. Add a drizzle of sesame oil (about 1 tablespoon - whatever feels right for your amount of vegetables).
  5. Slice the tuna and place over jasmine rice. Serve seared vegetables on the side. Drizzle with remaining marinade and sprinkle with sesame seeds. For an extra flavor kick, add more Spicy-Sweet Sun Valley Mustard on top.
