Whether it’s the summertime heat or an increase in activities, we all seem to want to eat lighter fare in the summer. Here’s a great tuna recipe that uses light, fresh ingredients, but is packed with protein for a filling meal. This Summertime Asian Sesame Tuna with Miso Dipping Sauce is a great appetizer to share, or it can be served with rice or a crisp salad for a satisfying meal. This beautifully-presented meal is easy to prepare with these step-by-step instructions.

First, start by making the Miso Dipping Sauce. You’ll want these flavors to have time to develop together while you’re searing the tuna.

Miso Dipping Sauce

2 teaspoons white miso (find it in the refrigerated section of Asian or Health food grocery stores)

3 teaspoons freshly grated ginger

2 tablespoons Japanese rice wine

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1⁄3 cup fresh orange juice

2 tablespoons white vinegar

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (more for a spicier sauce)

1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil

2 teaspoons freshly chopped green onion (whites and green tops)

To prepare the sauce, add all of the ingredients to a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside to let flavors develop while you prepare the tuna.

Seared Sesame-Crusted Tuna

1/3 cup white and black sesame seeds (about half of each)

Four 4-ounce yellowfin tuna steaks

1 tablespoon olive oil

Spread sesame seeds on a small plate. Press tuna steaks into seeds to coat the steaks evenly. Heat the oil in a large sauté pan over med-high heat.  Place steaks into pan together to sear quickly. This should take roughly 30 seconds per side, though you can cook them longer if you prefer. The inside of the steaks will be raw. Once seared, transfer the steaks to a paper-towel to absorb the minimal coating of oil. Transfer steaks to cutting board and slice in ¼” slices and arrange on serving plate. The small, thin slices of tuna should be ringed with the sesame seeds on all sides. Serve al a carte or with a side salad or rice.
