How to make it
- Combine all ingredients for the sauce; set aside (the sliced ginger will infuse the sauce).
- On a shallow plate, pour the sesame seeds. Season the tuna with cracked black pepper and salt. Coat the tuna in the sesame seeds, pressing lightly so they stick to the tuna.
- Place a saute pan over high heat. Add the oil and sear the tuna on both sides, about 1 minute per side.
- In a bowl combine the cucumber, green onions and frisee. Toss with some of the citrus-ginger sauce.
- Slice the chilled tuna across the grain, faning it out into 3-4 pieces per plate. Place some of the dressed greens on 4 plates. Top with sliced tuna, garnish with avocado and drizzle with some more of the citrus-ginger sauce.

I make the sesame seared tuna quite often, but I've never had a good sauce to go with it. This sounds perfect, and delicious!pkusmc in Worcester loved it
I keep forgetting to come back here and rate this. I make sesame seared tuna a lot, and have been in search of a sauce that can really stand out. This one is IT!! Great combination of flavor. I've made it twice, now. Second time I added more than jus...morepkusmc in Worcester loved it
