Once up to temp place covered pan into oven for 20-25 minutes or 165 degrees. Alternatively it can be transferred to a covered microwave safe bowl with a tablespoon of water and heated, fluffing with a fork every 60 seconds, until hot.
  • Open tuna and blot any excess liquid off with a paper towel. rub fish with oil and sprinkle and lightly press sesame seeds onto the top and bottom of the steaks and season as desired with salt. Heat a skillet or fry pan on medium high heat, once hot add 1-2 tablespoons of oil, once oil shimmers add tuna to pan. Sear for approximately 2 minutes on each side for medium rare, 3 on each side for medium*. (note: heat can vary depending on your stove. Use your best judgement on stove temperature and length of cooking time based on your experience with your own equipment). Let tuna rest 5 minutes and slice into strips.

  • Chips and dip can be eaten as an appetizer or alongside the meal.
  • In large pho style or pasta bowls, build your bowl any way you like, but we recommend by starting with a base of rice, then topped with veggies, tuna on top and garnish of chili mayo and furikake seasoning.
