Hello, I'm Marsha Orosco, I'm the executive chef at The Dome Restaurant Bar and Lounge here in Coral Gables, and today I'm going to be showing you how to prepare sesame crusted tuna. So sesame crusted tuna, it's a very simple dish. The main ingredients, pretty much, is your tuna, I tend to use both black and white sesame seeds. I like the contrasts in the colors, but you can do all black or all white sesame seeds if you prefer. We're going to season our fish with salt and pepper. And we're going to sear it in extra virgin olive oil. If you don't want to use extra virgin olive oil you could use sesame oil as well. It would sear the fish perfectly well but for today's purposes we're using extra virgin. So the first thing I'm going to do is season my fish on both sides. And I'm seasoning with salt and pepper. And then I'm going to take it and I'm going to place it in the sesame seeds. Now obviously there's a lot of moisture in the fish already. So it's not as if you need to put a batter on it or anything, the seeds are going to stick right on there. Do you see that? And that's pretty much just from the natural moisture of the fish. Then you're going to put the fish right in there. Now you can hear that sizzling noise. Just be careful because the sesame seeds will pop. Obviously that's just a natural reaction to the heat toasting the seeds. Now with tuna you can cook tuna in all different temperatures. Most people tend to sear tuna rare. Although I have been known to prepare it medium rare a lot of times for quite a few people. So since our pan was hot you could see, just from looking in the pan, that the seeds were turning golden brown, which tells me that the seeds on the tuna is definitely golden brown. Now you can see that it's got a nice golden brown color on all sides of the tuna, which is exactly what you're looking for. Because the purpose of this really is to toast those sesame seeds. And here you go. So we have a beautiful perfectly seared black and white sesame crusted tuna. My name is Marsha Orosco, I'm with The Dome Restaurant Bar and Lounge, thank you for joining me, I'll see you again.
