  • ¼ cup of sesame seeds
  • ¼ cup of black sesame seeds
  • 4 ahi tuna steaks
  • 1 tablespoon of dark sesame oil
  • ½ pound of red cabbage, thinly sliced
  • ½ pound of Napa cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, cut into julienne strips
  • 1 onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces of snow peas
  • Teriyaki stir-fry sauce
  • Hot cooked rice

Step By Step Preparation

  1. Combine the sesame seeds on a plate. Take the tuna steaks, and evenly coat both sides of them with the sesame seeds. Heat a large, heavy skillet over high heat until it’s very hot, and sear the tuna steaks in it (1 minute per side for rare, 3 minutes per side for medium-rare). Remove the tuna from the heat and set it aside.
  2. Get a large wok or saucepan, and heat it over high heat. Add the veggies to the pan, and stir-fry them for about 2 minutes (or until they’re crisp-tender). Add the Teriyaki sauce to the stir-fry, to taste.
  3. Slice the steaks in half and serve them with the rice and the teriyaki stir-fry. Drizzle them with sweet chili sauce.
