4 x 200g tuna steaks

3/4 cup (115g) sesame seeds

1 cup (200g) medium grain rice

1 sheet nori, finely shredded

1/4 cup (60ml) peanut oil

1/2 cup (125g) Japanese or whole egg mayonnaise

Method :
  1. Coat the tuna steaks in the sesame seeds, pressing down to coat well.

  3. Wash the rice until the water runs clear, then place in a saucepan with 2 cups (500ml) water.
  4. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to as low as possible and cook, covered for 10-12 minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat and leave, covered for 5 minutes.
  6. While hot, pour on the combined rice wine vinegar, mirin, sugar and 1/4 tsp salt.
  7. Stir with a fork to separate the grains and fold in the shredded nori.
  8. Keep warm.
  9. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the tuna and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until the sesame seeds are crisp and golden.
  10. The tuna should still be a little pink in the middle.
