Grilled Sesame Tuna Steaks Drizzled with Garlic Ghee



  1. Combine tamari, rice vinegar, mirin or sake, jaggery and Kashmiri red chili pepper in a dish or pan. Add the tuna, flipping it over to get marinade on both sides. Let it rest in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  2. Flip the tuna steaks. Continue to marinate another 20 minutes.
  3. Put the sesame seeds in a bowl; set aside.
  4. Remove the tuna and discard the marinade.
  5. Either press some sesame seeds into both sides of each tuna steak or lay steaks over the sesame, flipping to get seeds on both sides. Use about 2 tsp of seeds on each side, using more if desired.
  6. Grill the tuna 1 – 3 minutes or more per side, or until done to your liking. Transfer to a plate.
  7. Put a spoonful of garlic ghee over each tuna steak; let them rest for a few minutes while the ghee melts.
  8. Serve with additional tamari and freshly ground black peppercorns.
