My husband and I are trying to eat more fish, especially fish that's high in omega-3 fats, and I've found my new "go-to" recipe for fresh tuna. It's Sesame Tuna and it takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish. Aside from the tuna, I had all the other ingredients on hand, so this was easy to pull together.

I made a couple of changes in this recipe, but not many. Instead of low-sodium soy sauce, I used Ponzu, which is basically a citrus soy sauce. For some reason, I have just discovered this sauce and want to put it on everything. It was fantastic! I sprinkled just a little less salt on the tuna since I was not using low-sodium soy sauce, and it was fine. Also, I only cooked the tuna about 1 minute on each side because I like it rare. I wouldn't go much longer than 2 minutes on each side or the tuna will be too dry. It really doesn't need to flake easily with a fork. For me, that stage is too done.


This is one recipe you can't beat for an easy, healthy weeknight meal. With only 6 ingredients and less than 10 minutes to prepare, this is my kind of dinner. Let me just get on my soapbox one more time and let people know that eating healthy is just not that hard. Check out 15-Minute Fish Dinners if you're trying to eat more fish.
