Seared Sesame Tuna

This article was written for Annabel & Grace, which is now part of Rest Less.

I am a firm fan of 5 Ingredients, Jamie Oliver’s recipe book. For the first time ever I have been working my way through the entire book, knocking up these healthy recipes one by one. We haven’t had a disappointing lunch or supper yet and, as there aren’t masses of carbohydrates, we are feeling well fed but not putting on any weight. Even though each and every recipe only has five ingredients, we have been delighted by some of the taste combinations. This Seared Sesame Tuna is probably one of our faves and Husband and I thoroughly recommend you try it too. The miso paste makes this quick and easy dish something special…

Ingredients serves 2
1 heaped tablespoon miso paste
2 x 150 g tuna steaks , (ideally 2cm thick), from sustainable sources
4 tablespoons sesame seeds
8 spring onions
150g sugar snap peas

Place a large non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat. Rub the miso all over the tuna, then pat on the sesame seeds to cover. Place in the hot pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sear for 1½ minutes on each side, so it’s beautifully golden on the outside but blushing in the middle. Remove to a board to rest. Quickly wipe out the pan with a ball of kitchen paper, then return to the heat.

Trim the spring onions and slice at an angle the same length as the sugar snaps, tossing both into the hot pan with a few drips of red wine vinegar and a pinch of sea salt for 2 minutes to lightly catch and char. Slice the sesame tuna and serve on top of the veg, drizzled with 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil.
