Sometimes you prepare one recipe and later create something delicious with the remainder...this is one of those.  The original recipe calls for tuna to be served over an arugula salad.  Since I didn't have fresh arugula, I chose to saute fresh spinach, onions, sun dried tomatoes and sweet red peppers in a dab of sesame oil to serve as a "bed" for my tuna.



Sesame Coated Tuna

Fresh tuna steaks or medallions (about 1 lb.)

1 TB sesame oil mixed with 1 tsp rice vinegar

1/3 cup sesame seeds

Salt & Pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees


Brush tuna with sesame oil and rice vinegar.  Dip into sesame seeds until coated on all sides. 

Place in a nonstick baking pan.  Bake 10 minutes for rare or as perferred.
