Tuna doesn’t have to come out of a can! This simple recipe delivers lightly-seared tuna steaks crusted in sesame seeds and flavorful spices: crispy on the outside and still rare on the inside. It’s elegant enough for a black-tie dinner if that’s what you’re cooking for, but delicious enough that you shouldn’t wait for one to try it.
