How To Make Korean-Style Seared Tuna
Savor a bite of this seared tuna that is simmered in a tasty Korean-style sauce made of sesame oil, soy sauce, and garlic, for a delectably filling meal!
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar, red pepper flakes, and broth. Sprinkle the fish with salt and black pepper.
Heat the cooking oil in a large frying pan over moderately high heat. Add the tuna and cook for about 3 minutes until brown. Turn and cook the fish until done to preferred taste, about 3 to 4 minutes longer for medium-rare.
Reduce the heat to moderately low and put the sesame oil in the pan. Stir in the scallion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the soy sauce mixture, and simmer for about 2 minutes until reduced to approximately ⅓ cup.
Cut the tuna into slices and serve with the sauce. Enjoy!
- Fish Alternatives: Salmon fillets or steaks will also go well with this highly-seasoned sauce.
- If preferred to have the tuna cooked through, just add a few more minutes to the cooking time. Be careful not to overcook it, though, or it will be dry.
