This was quite good. I realized I didn't have any chili oil at the last minute, so I substituted a chopped serrano pepper for some heat. I served it with Cooking Light's (April 2010) Quick Skillet Asparagus recipe (also on this site). I plan to make this again.
Double-Sesame Grilled Tuna
You can serve the tuna with quick-cooking rice and steamed baby bok choy to round out your meal.
