Serves: 2 PRINT THIS


  • 1½ tbsp soy sauce
  • ½ tsp white sugar
  • Pinch of dried red pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
  • 2 Dinko Southern Bluefin Tuna steaks
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 spring onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Sesame seeds, to garnish


1 In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, sugar, red pepper flakes and broth.

2 Sprinkle tuna steaks with salt and black pepper.

3 Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over moderately high heat. Once hot, add tuna and sear until outside is brown, about 1 minute. Turn and cook fish until done to your taste, 1 to 2 minutes longer for medium rare.

4 Reduce heat to moderately low and add sesame oil to pan. Stir in spring onions and garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, for about 1 minute.

5 Add soy sauce mixture to the pan and simmer until reduced to approximately 1/3 cup, about 2 minutes.

6 Cut tuna into slices, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with sauce.
