Tuna Steak in Sesame Crust

Along with salmon, tuna is probably one of the most popular types of fish to eat. It is also one of the most expensive. You can eat tuna raw, for example in sushi, but a grilled tuna steak is also very tasty. Especially if you grill it on the BBQ! With tuna, by the way, the taste depends on the quality of the fish. So go for a good piece of tuna, because otherwise it will disappoint. My favorite tuna steak is this one, coated in white and black sesame seeds. Just marinate in soy sauce first and you have a perfect piece of tuna!
