The deceptive simplicity of this dish highlights the complexity of rich flavor imparted by our seared tuna steak paired with tender sauteed string beans, garlic, soy and ginger.

Step 1

Lightly coat the tuna steaks with oil. Pat salt, pepper and sesame seeds on both sides.

Step 2

Add 1 Tbsp oil to cast iron skillet and bring to medium-high heat.

Step 3

Place tuna steaks in skillet when oil just starts to smoke.

Step 4

Cook each side for 45 -60 seconds (or until desired temperature).

Step 5

Heat a medium-sized pan fitted with a lid over medium-low heat. Add sesame oil and olive oil, and heat until oil is warmed but not smoking.

Step 6

Add garlic and ginger, saute for 30 seconds, continuously stirring until fragrant. Add green beans and increase heat to medium, saute for 1 minute. Add one tablespoon water and one teaspoon soy sauce, stir to combine. Cover and allow to cook for 2 minutes.

Step 7

Stir and cover, cook another 1 to 2 minutes, or until beans are crispy and tender. Turn off heat. Season with salt and pepper as needed. Sprinkle beans with sesame seeds.
