Try Jan Braai’s Recipe for Seared Tuna with Sesame Seeds

FireworksMichael Olivier has shared a mouth-watering recipe for Seared Tuna with Sesame Seeds.

The recipe makes enough for four people and calls for four very fresh or “sashimi grade” tuna steaks. Braai recommends catching the tuna yourself for optimal freshness.

The tuna is brushed with olive oil and cooked as soon as possible, because when it comes to fish, the fresher the better.
