Recipe

Last night I really didn’t want to cook dinner. More specifically I wanted to have someone wait on me, not have a dirty kitchen, and eat something delicious without doing any work. Then I quickly remembered I had recently splurged on some fresh Ahi tun and there was no way I was going to let it go bad in the fridge. The solution? Figure out the quickest dish I could make that would still feel fancy and be tasty. The result? This incredibly easy and quick recipe for sesame crusted tuna. All it takes is about 1 minute of covering the tuna in sesame seeds and 2 minutes of cooking. Easy, quick, and delicious.

I used regular and black sesame seeds but either will work.
