6 oz Tuna Fillet
2 oz Sesame See Coating
1 oz Sesame Oil

2 oz Pickled Ginger

Method for Sesame-Crusted Tuna

• Pat the tuna fillet dry and season with the seafood seasoning on both sides. Press each side of the tuna into the sesame seed coating to evenly coat the fillet.
• Ladle 1oz of sesame oil into a sauté pan. Heat the oil to smoking and add the tuna fillet. Sear each side, toasting the sesame seeds. Cook to desired temperature.
• Remove the cooked fillet from the heat and place it on a clean cutting board. Using a sharp knife, cut the tuna on the bias into very thin slices.
• Place the hot wasabi-parmesan mashed potatoes in the center of a hot plate.
• Place the ginger in a small, compact pile on top of the potatoes. Form the wasabi paste into a ball and place it next to the ginger on top of the potatoes.
• Drizzle 3oz of warm tamari-wine sauce around the mashed potatoes. Fan the tuna around the pile of potatoes. Be sure to pull the tuna in tight to give the plate a more elegant and composed look.
• Garnish the plate with a lemon half and a sprig of fresh flat leaf parsley.
• Check to make sure that the plate is still hot and serve immediately.
