    Directions

    1. Cut tuna into quarters lengthwise. Pour sesame oil over tuna; turn to coat evenly. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Mix black sesame seed, pepper and salt on large plate. Coat tuna with black sesame seed mixture, pressing firmly so mixture adheres to the tuna
    2. Heat oil in large skillet on high heat. Add tuna; sear 2 minutes per side. Remove from skillet; set aside to cool
    3. For the Wasabi Citrus Aioli, mix mayonnaise, paprika, lemon and lime peels and juices and garlic in medium bowl with wire whisk until well blended. Cover
    4. Slice tuna into 1/8-inch thick slices. Place 1 slice of tuna on each cucumber slice. Top each with a small dollop of Wasabi Citrus Aioli

    It was easy, light and very tasty! Just enough salty, spicy and fresh! I paired this dish with rice cakes. I used some leftover Chinese take out rice. I threw in the residual salt, pepper, and black sesame seeds from what didn’t stick to the tuna and added eggs, bread crumbs and a bit of soy sauce and blended until a bit sticky. I fried n the same pan after I seared the tuna. They were the perfect side dish to this ahi delight!
